Lindsay Lohan 5 Pound Weight Gain Is Due To Adderall Withdrawal At Betty Ford

Betty Ford has been a tough time for many celebrities in the past, so Lindsay Lohan’s 5 pounds weight gain probably isn’t all that important, comparatively. Nevertheless, the Mean Girls star seems to really be struggling with her rehab regimen, especially since her doctors took away her Adderall. According to RadarOnline.com, who broke the story while LiLo claims to have only taken the drug to relieve her ADHD, Addies are notorious in Hollywood circles for their metabolism-boosting, appetite-lowering side effects.

“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,” a source at Betty Ford said, via The Inquisitr. Meanwhile, Lohan herself claims that she never used the drug for its more shady properties: “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.”

The Betty Ford team obviously doesn’t seem to believe her account though. In fact, it is the rehab center’s policy to not allow patients over 18 to take the drug. Aside from that minor struggle though, Lohan’s time in rehab seems to be paying off. After a week at the center, things are definitely looking up. Of course, she still has 80 days of court-mandated rehab left, so anything can happen.

To be fair, the few pounds might even go unnoticed on the actress's wispy frame.
