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.

I feel she is in the right place, and I also think that the doctors their are right about Adderall, I don't think it's needed every day. I also think she should not be given favoritism as to where she wants to stay. She still has a lot of growing up to do, and I hope the Betty Ford Center can help her recover and get her life back on track.

Any doctor or rehab that prescribes Adderall to an adult needs to be investigated. I have been saying for the longest time that NO reputable MD will give an adult Adderall. Gee Lindsay do you think the fact that you cannot tolerate 90 days without this drug is a sign that you are in some trouble with substance abuse? All of her energy is being spent on getting and keeping this drug-WTF?

@Seamus...exactly. I saw a show last week about a guy known as Doc Hollywood. He was selling scripts for $150 per script. Guess what his biggest seller was. Adderall. The guy made a ton of money until he finially got caught. He was scripting Adderall close to 10x's more than other physicians.


He stopped seeing patients and just wrote scripts. Wonder how much Lohan takes a day?

Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors have let Lohan have everything she wanted, when she wanted it, so far. Why would anyone expect them to suddenly start doing their jobs now?

How dare they not let her take drugs at rehab! She'll get her own way though. And there will never be any repercussions and there will never be any lessons learned.
