Lindsay Lohan Adderall Shocker?

Blame it on the A-a-a-a-a-adderall?

Sources close to Lindsay Lohan are reporting that thedrug Adderall may be causing a lot of her recent troubles, after she was mistakenly diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

The troubled actress recently served jail time for troubles that arose from her alleged alcohol and substance abuse problems, and now new reports suggest Adderall may be at the root of these problems.

Adderall is a prescription medication for ADHD, a drug that is also used by many young people to aid them with studying and concentration, and misused very often with negative effects on mental health.

Lindsay Lohan Adderall Shocker?

Lindsay Lohan's Adderall addiction has been well documented at this point, but it may all be the result of a medical misdiagnosis and largely responsible for her increasingly erratic behavior over the past several months (or years). Doctors at UCLA Medical Center, where she is currently in rehab, believe Lindsay was misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). At some point, Lohan was given Adderall to treat the affliction, which experts such as Dr. Joe Haraszti, an L.A. addiction specialist, say she doesn't have. According to Haraszti, people who take Adderall when they don't actually need it can experience severe side effects - similar to using cocaine or meth.
