Lindsay Lohan is reportedly threatening to quit the rehab center she's only been in for about five seconds because the institution wants to take away her Adderall. Lindsay claims she has ADHD and that the Adderall helps calm her, but apparently the rehab peeps think she's just abusing the drug and using it to stay slim.
A source told RadarOnline:
Lindsay has been able to eat whatever she has wanted and not gain weight for years and she attributes this to Adderall. Everyone knows that the controversial drug ramps up your metabolism, and can suppress the appetite. Lindsay has been talking to patients at Betty Ford and she is mortified when others reveal they have experienced a huge weight gain while in treatment.
Lilo, however, told Piers Morgan that the drug is strictly to keep her calm. (She's calm???!!) She said:
I have severe ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I can’t stand still. So I take Adderall for that, it calms me. I know people who take it to stay up, or girls who take it to supposedly stay slim because it kills your appetite. But I eat all the time. I just take it to stay calm. It works well for me.
Either way, here's my question: Who the hell is spilling all of this intensely personal information to the tabs? If it's someone who works at Betty Ford, that person needs to be fired. If it's one of Lindsay's friends, no wonder the girl is so messed up if she can't even trust her friends or family not to blab everything, even her rehab, to the tabs.
Or are people just making all of this stuff up? Is Lindsay herself reporting to the tabs? I'm actually hoping for the last, because even Lindsay Lohan deserves to have her private business inside a rehab clinic kept private.
Anyway, if this is Calm Lindsay on Adderall, I'd hate to see her off of it. Tread carefully, Betty Ford!
Do you know anyone who uses Adderall for weight loss?
