Lindsay Lohan

Cut Off from Adderall

I'm Quitting Betty Ford!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0510_lindsayIt's Lindsay Lohan's worst fear ... doctors at The Betty Ford Center have cut off her precious supply of Adderall -- and now, she's hell-bent on making her escape.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay's claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).​

We're told Betty Ford's doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug.  And, we're told, the doctors are well aware many people -- especially Hollywood types -- misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.

Here's the immediate problem ... Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.

And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.

Bear ,if you are still out there, you will have to come over to Pt. Lincoln , which is on the West coast of my state. You can swim with The Great Whites over there, in a cage. it is where they filmed some of the scenes from Jaws. Alternately, you can just come for a swim at my local beach and be aquainted with them on any given day. Used to be a rare occurance, but it is getting pretty scary nowdays.

Send her to a state facility where she will not be able to escape. Her freedoms will be taken away from her. This would include her cell phone, shoestrings, belts, scarves or any glass make-up or perfume bottles she brought. She would not be able to call her family and friends when ever she wants, miss instructional classes or get medications when she wants. Lindsey- following rules, regulations and the law seems like a drop in the bucket now doesn't it.

Adderall is not addictive contrary to popular belief! People give this med a bad rap but it's true name is Ritalin and it has been on the market for over 45 years and it is NOT addictive so I don't understand all the hype that surrounds this very necessary drug for the people who actually need it!

@Sez...Good Morning. Happy Mothers Day. TMZ is easier to post on than ROL. TMZ posts, you know the last post is the current post. ROL is all over the place.


Besides, don't know about you but I've noticed that I have to pick an ad wait for that to be done to read a story.

The headline says it all: That's when she should be forcibly committed by the courts and detoxed, because she has a problem.
