Lindsay Lohan Deemed “Physically, Mentally Healthy”
According to sources, the staff at UCLA have determined that the “Mean Girls” actress is not an addict and has been misdiagnosed with ADHD and bi-polar disorder.
Furthermore, she’s been “weaned off” a cocktail of prescription meds such as Zoloft, Adderall, Nexium, Dilaudid, and Ambien without any serious reaction. LiLo also hasn’t experienced any withdrawal from a lack of alcohol consumption.
Dr. John Sharp, a neuropsychiatrist on the faculty at UCLA and Harvard, but not involved with Lohan’s case, explains that the effects of improper Adderall use could drive one off the rails.
“They can destabilize you and make you more prone to mood swings…They make a person more likely to partake in other extravagances,” says Sharp. “If someone is prone to spend a lot of money, they would spend more money. If someone has a little bit of a problem with self-medicating and drinking, they could likely do more of that.”
