Lindsay Lohan Gains 5 Pounds After Having Adderall Taken Away

Lindsay Lohan Gains 5 Pounds After Having Adderall Taken Away

Lindsay Lohan has gained 5 pounds since having Adderall taken away during her court-ordered rehab stint, a source close to the actress has said.

Lohan has been at the Betty Ford Clinic after a judge sentenced her to rehab, but she is said to be having a difficult time without her Adderall. As a result, the 26-year-old actress has reportedly been turning to food for comfort.

The result is that Lindsay Lohan has gained 5 pounds.

Though Lindsay is reportedly trying to stay active, she’s found it’s difficult since being denied Adderall.

“She has been exercising, but she just doesn’t have a lot of energy because she is no longer taking Adderall, which is a psychostimulant medication that contains amphetamine,” the source said.

Lindsay was worried this might happen. The star reportedly “freaked out” when officials at the Betty Ford Clinic took away her Adderall last week.

“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,” a source told RadarOnline last week.

Lohan said she needs the drug to treat her Attention Deficit Disorder.

“I have severe ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I can’t stand still,” Lohan said. “So I take Adderall (a prescription drug) 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.”

Lohan was sent to the Betty Ford Clinic for a 90-day stint as part of a plea bargain following her car accident in Santa Monica, California. If staying at the clinic and off Adderall can help her avoid jail, Lindsay Lohan can live with 5 extra pounds.

    Whomever decided this was news is disgusting. She's in rehab. Wish her the best instead of adding to her misery.

    I can't stand the woman. But I find it disgusting that her weight is now being watched so closely. Leave her alone and let her detox out of the public eye.

    YAHOO 'news" why are you so obsessed with this trainwreck of a person? I didn't read the article, I don't need to.
    I'm only here to waste 30 seconds of my time to say please clean yourselves up.

    What a weird story. First, how does this friend really know about the five pounds unless Lindsey told him? Secondly, a friend shoudn't speak to the press!, and thirdly, let the old girl live her life and hopefully get better in rehab. We all know that it wouldn't be surprising if she OD'd in a few months. She is a human being like anyone else. Good luck to her.

    I agree that they should give this woman some space and let her get better. I hope the "source" of this story is revealed and gets a little comeupence.

    Who really cares? What of the people who can't gain weight because they cannot get food to eat! It is too bad that stories like this make NEWS, but others do not that really matter.

    What is this an advertisement for Adderall? Chances are she'll lose weight if she quits alcohol.
