Were Lindsay Lohan's Wild Ways Caused by ADHD Medication?

Doctors at the UCLA rehab facility that Lindsay Lohan is currently attending say the troubled actress’ problems may have been caused by being misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Find out why after the jump.

According to a report by TMZ, doctors at UCLA's Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital believe Lindsay Lohan’s problems may have been caused by her ADHD medication Adderall. Doctors state Lohan was misdiagnosed with ADHD and should never have been prescribed Adderall.

Patients who are wrongly prescribed Adderall are known to display erratic and troubling behavior.  Addiction expert Dr. Joe Haraszti told TMZ, “people who take Adderall when they don't need it can experience similar effects as people who use cocaine or methamphetamine.” The doc adds, “people who unnecessarily take Adderall can display manic symptoms ... and often do things like driving around until all hours of the morning ... smoking heavily ... tweeting ... and texting all night long. They can become very impulsive.” The drug apparently affects sleep cycles causing insomnia and is known to lead to alcohol abuse.

Lindsay is reportedly doing well in rehab, having been “weaned off” six of her prescription medications without any side effects or withdrawals. Doctors at the hospital believe Lohan’s judge “overreacted” in sentencing her to 90 days in rehab.

Could this mean Lindsay’s on the verge of a big comeback?
