Lohan Adderall: Lindsay Addicted To ADD Drug, Wants Medication Attached To Plea Deal

Drug addiction is extremely difficult to overcome, and although the public already knew that Lindsay Lohan has been battling drug dependency for years, a recent event shed some light into just how bad the situation is.

Lindsay Lohan's Adderall dependency is so bad that that actress is prepared to go ahead with trail if she's not allowed to continue using the drug as part of her plea agreement. The agreement that was approved by a California judge two weeks ago includes 90 days of residential rehab, 18 months of psychological counseling and 30 days of community service. Still, Lohan is prepared to throw away the relatively favorable deal for a gruesome court case is she's not allowed to continue using Adderal during rehab.

Lindsay Lohan's Adderall dependency stems from an attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder that the actress reportedly has according to TMZ. The celebrity gossip news site also reports that friends have seen Lohan abuse Adderall daily for several years. The actress reportedly uses the drug for off-label purposes. Of course, Lohan isn't telling the judge that.

"That was never a part of any discussion with the prosecutors or the court. That was never an issue we addressed," said Lindsay Lohan's lawyer Mark Heller in New York Daily News report.

"Prosecutors or the court would never interject themselves into medical determinations," he said. "Patients traditionally apprise facilities of what medications, if any, they're prescribed, and after a full series of medical evaluations, each facility determines what medications, if any, are going to be allowed. This is never dictated by the patient. It's always determined by medical staff who are well qualified."

Lindsay Lohan's Adderall addiction isn't the only demon she's facing. The actress reportedly used other prescriptions over the last few years such as Zoloft, trazadone and a powerful opiate called Dilaudid. Lindsay Lohan's attorney claims that the two are still considering a variety of facilities to meet the actresses needs and to meet the court's requirements. Still, if Lohan is able to use Adderall while attending rehab, it may not be best for her. TMZ reports that Lohan's friends believe Adderall led to her downfall.
