Lindsay Lohan Is Not a Drug Addict. Come Again?

August 20th, 2010 // 79 Comments

Doctors at UCLA have apparently concluded that Lindsay Lohan is not a bipolar drug addict after all and was simply misdiagnosed with ADHD which led to her going on the most highly publicized Adderall bender known to man. Excuse me while I vomit blood. TMZ reports:

We’re told Lindsay has been “weaned off” all of her meds — Dilaudid, Ambien, Adderall, Zoloft, Trazodone and Nexium — and has had no adverse reaction. Likewise, she has had no withdrawal issues in the alcohol department. Bottom line — the docs don’t think Lindsay is an addict.
And, we’re told Lindsay was misdiagnosed in the past with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) — which is why she started taking Adderall. The UCLA docs say LiLo does not have ADHD.
And finally, as for having psychiatric problems — again the doctors say it’s just not the case. Morningside Recovery — the rehab facility Judge Revel initially chose for Lindsay — determined she was bipolar, but the docs at UCLA say she is not. Our sources say Lindsay suffers from a personality disorder, which is all too common in society and sometimes partly the result of difficulties when growing up in Hollywood.

When asked to identify the personality disorder, Lindsay’s physician pulled out a picture of Michael and Dina before making the sign of the cross and lighting it on fire. On that note, other physicians are chiming in to back up the Adderall theory:

Dr. Joe Haraszti — a prominent L.A. addiction specialist — tells TMZ … people who take Adderall when they don’t need it can experience similar effects as people who use cocaine or methamphetamine.
Dr. Haraszti tells us … people who unnecessarily take Adderall can display manic symptoms … and often do things like “driving around until all hours of the morning … smoking heavily … tweeting … and texting all night long.” The doc adds, “They can become very impulsive.”
The doc also notes that people in that situation “might then complain of insomnia and then take Ambien or other sleep aids to help fall asleep … it’s a vicious cycle.”

Awesome. So basically the moral of the story is Lindsay Lohan just got served the biggest scapegoat of her life on a silver platter. “See? It was everybody else’s fault! AHAHAHAHAHA! *drunkenly drives into a day care* The Adderall did it.”

    Did the Adderal forget to teach her the correct way to hold a gun, too?

  2. So the diagnosis is this hot ginger mess is simply crazy now that she’s off the pills.
    Turn her loose. Let’s get the circus started back up again.
    “Lindsay’s physician pulled out a picture of Michael and Dina before making the sign of the cross and lighting it on fire”
    Yes, that about sums it up nicely.

    Are you kidding? She is an addict, look at all the meds she was taking
    She is just acting like she is fine, because she knows how to trick them into thinking she is normal.

    • RaraAvis

      Not everyone who takes drugs is an addict. In other words, she took drugs because she likes to take drugs, not because she’s addicted to them.

      • Leslie

        If you take opiates regularly for any given amount of time…you ARE an opiate addict. There is no way she was taking Dilaudid..and magically ended up not addicted. It is just not physically possible. She may have experienced small, insignificant withdrawal symptoms..but what are they keywords here? Withdrawal. Symptoms.

    Do you guys ever print ANYTHING that doesn’t come from TMZ? Why don’t you just redirect your webpage to theirs?

    What is this fire crotch wearing an 80′s “Let’s Get Physical” leotard for? I guess when your Lindsay Lohan, good work is hard to come by these days! Especially when your new rant is that you are not a drug addict! NOT!

    What a body…but she is reduced to photo shoots like this?

  12. Crusty

    While Lindsay may not be as emotionally developed as she should be and she still should be accountable for her behavior, the simple truth may be.. and this hurts to even type.. the doctor’s may well be correct. Being misdiagnosed and improperly medicated can cause problems.

    Being a total fuckjob doesn’t help either..

  13. Did the doctor see these photos? Look at her eyes in every pic. She’s stoned out of her gourd…..lol.

    .

    • Agreed….she’s looking very wasted in this photo shoot from a while ago when “Machete” came out.
      Guessing she’ll be released very soon. Good luck Lilo.

  14. Sugar

    This whole absurd notion of precscription drugs being exempt from the traditional “addiction” definition will be the downfall of America (I don’t know how prevalent the problem is in other countries). At least the pharmacists will be rich, though.

  15. Deacon Jones

    Like, OMG, that UZI, is like, sooooo outdated!

  16. McFeely Smackup

    This story sounds like it was made up on the spot from whole cloth.

    Last time I checked, DOCTORS don’t discuss private medical diagnosis with the press. In fact, I’m pretty sure this “doctor” would lose his license if this were a true story.

  17. Turd Ferguson

    Obviously it only takes 2 weeks to wean people off hard drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol and all the other shit someone like Lindsey has in her system. No doubt she is cured.

    Actually the only thing we know from hearing this latest EXCUSE for fire crotch is the fact that she is going to die. My dormant Dead Pool lives though …

  18. She is still taking drugs. She is still getting high. Whatever medical center she is at she has them fooled. The easiest thing for a drug addict to do is convince someone important that they are not high. Drugs are everywhere, you know people where you take drugs at work, this is reality. Most of wall street is drunk by 2:pm. Right.
    Lindsay Lohan gets high.

  19. jay

    this is such bullshit. she’s a drug addict, period. She will die from an overdose and everyone will be happy. wheee!

    • SooHee

      fuck what you think your dumb axl rocked the show you watend to see him singing with age moronic like that better think before you speak because you are nothing GUNS N ROSES is FUCK!

  20. i doubt very much she’s an addict. not saying she doesnt use things recreationally, but for example i bet the adderol is to keep her weight down. i say that cos i know it’s VERY common. coke? well many of us over 30 have been through that phase too and come out the other side just fine. but rather, i agree with that post from last week that said her worst problem is being approached constantly by horn bags. think how it would affect most females you know.

  21. oh i know

    so i guess it’s the same “personality disorder” that, say, Anna Nicole Smith had?? or brittany murphy? the one that turns into “flu like symptoms” right before you die???

  22. oh i know

    is this the “personality disorder” that turns into “flu like symptoms” right before you die???

  23. Darci

    I’d still tap that. She’s looking good in these pictures.

    But seriously, not as a nun. There’s something wrong with that.

  24. Sardonic

    With her system now cleansed, her first hit when she gets out of rehab is going to taste so good. Maybe the doctor she is blowing in rehab can get her some of the good stuff.

  25. eddy

    If she was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and was given medication for it she has a high chance of developing borderline personality disorder. That has the potential to lead to drug addiction. I’ve seen that happen to a lot of teens with bpd and it sucks.

  26. crack in can baby

    holy shitballs, look at her eyes in 4 and 5 …. crackedthefuckout

  27. Andrea

    OK, if she has a personality disorder she IS mentally ill. She probably has borderline personality, and that is one of the more crippling psychiatric disorders. Many people with Borderline Personality Disorder wind up killing themselves. Oh, and if she does have borderline personality, the most common cause is childhood sexual abuse. *cough* Michael Lohan pedophile *cough*

  28. Internet

    Nice Kardashian ad, Fish.
    Whore.

  29. Compound9

    Shes a Cunt. There is no cure for that. there is no rehab, there is no magic institution.
    I hope she is doing every drug on gods green earth… I mean why not it would be fun right up until you die.

    And Duh! yes of course she suffers from a personality disorder, who the fuck doesn’t. Stop treating her like something special, let her do all the drugs she wants and live her life she has the right to be as fucked up as any of the rest of us. (and yes there are consequences)
    Good riddance to bad rubbish I say.

    Fascinating news. Predicting a reputable health care org telling us Lohan is not an addict is completely unexpected. It’s like someone certifying her parents as terrific role models.

    NARCISSTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER:

    Narcissistic personality disorder symptoms may include:

    Believing that you’re better than others
    Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
    Exaggerating your achievements or talents
    Expecting constant praise and admiration
    Believing that you’re special and acting accordingly
    Failing to recognize other people’s emotions and feelings
    Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
    Taking advantage of others
    Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
    Being jealous of others
    Believing that others are jealous of you
    Trouble keeping healthy relationships
    Setting unrealistic goals
    Being easily hurt and rejected
    Having a fragile self-esteem
    Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional
    Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence or strong self-esteem, it’s not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence and self-esteem into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal. In contrast, people who have healthy confidence and self-esteem don’t value themselves more than they value others.

    When you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may have a sense of entitlement. And when you don’t receive the special treatment to which you feel entitled, you may become very impatient or angry. You may insist on having “the best” of everything — the best car, athletic club, medical care or social circles, for instance.

    But underneath all this behavior often lies a fragile self-esteem. You have trouble handling anything that may be perceived as criticism. You may have a sense of secret shame and humiliation. And in order to make yourself feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and efforts to belittle the other person to make yourself appear better.

      “I like him,” she says. “He’s me in male form. We’re very similar. Stubborn, rebellious, very smart, coy, a little bit narcissistic – I think all actors have a little bit of that, and so they should.”

      Describing good times with Best, she says, “We’ll be kidding around, like the other day when we were in the Bahamas … I was walking by some mirror. And he caught me looking in the mirror and he goes, ‘I caught that!’ I was like, ‘Damn, I look good!’ ”

    Although the cause of narcissistic personality disorder isn’t known, researchers continue to learn more about the factors that may increase the risk of developing the condition. In the past, experts believed excessive praise, admiration and indulgence from parents may lead to a pathologically inflated sense of self. Today, however, psychiatrists believe parental neglect is more likely responsible.

    Risk factors for narcissistic personality disorder may include:

    Parental disdain for fears and needs expressed during childhood
    Lack of affection and praise during childhood
    Neglect and emotional abuse in childhood
    Unpredictable or unreliable caregiving from parents
    Learning manipulative behaviors from parents
    Children who learn from their parents that vulnerability is unacceptable may lose their ability to empathize with others’ needs. They may also mask their emotional needs with grandiose, egotistical behavior that’s calculated to make them seem emotionally “bulletproof.”

    1. I wonder if the TMZ story is a plant by the Dina Lohan PR machine.

    2. If the diagnosis is real, I wonder if they will change their minds once the photos of Lindsay snorting coke off the sidewalk in front of some club show up in six months. Or will it just be some “talcum powder” that fell out of her purse?

  45. Get It

    the adderall + downer cycle is a hard & destructive one to break out of, no matter how dismissive her PR may word it. even if she was misdiagnosed with the overused ADHD label by doctors, she wouldn’t have kept taking the uppers in such a destructive manner if they weren’t so conducive to the lifestyle of someone who likes that energy buzz, don’t stop til you drop rampage. when you love coke, adderall is an almost seamless substitute (i have a “friend of a friend” who weaned off that way)
