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.

What does she have to pay attention to in a rehab? All she has to do is sit there and space out for the term of hr sentence. How hard is that? I don't think the issue is ADHD, I think she is worried about her weight.


I am sure they can prescribe a diet plan for her there also. They probably have gourmet chefs making all the food. How is it so hard to just eat what they give you to stay the right weight?


The Adderall is probably addling up her brain. If she wants to recover, she needs to give up all of the addictive substances. She is clinging to mind and mood altering substances. That is not good. She will never get over her mindset of needing a chemical to deal with her life if she continues to rely on them.

Psychiatric drugs are highly addictive. She is probably psychologically dependent on the Adderall at this point. Maybe she doesn't trust them to wean her off it without withdrawals.

Most doctors tell people to cut sugar and carbs before prescribing anything against ADHD! Maybe she should try that first! She's not a 5-year old, time to grow up!
