Nicole Richie Possibly Popping Prescription Drugs

by at . Comments

Rumors are swirling that the sickly Nicole Richie is now taking a drug called Adderall, which is in the same drug family as crystal meth.

The side effects include:

  • Loss of appetite.
  • Weight loss.

Well, at least that won't drastically alter her current lifestyle.

Supposedly, the 85-pound star has been seeing a doctor to treat her lack of appetite and weight loss. For the last six years. Just kidding. If this drug rumor is true, then all she has to do to cure herself is stop taking Adderall.

Interestingly, like Vicodin, Adderall is a controlled substance because it is highly addictive, and is not given to known drug addicts.

Maybe she has the same doc as Anna Nicole Smith. But regardless of Dr. Sandeep Kapoor's possible involvement, here's more on Ms. Richie from In Touch Weekly ....

"Nicole Richie was hospitalized on March 2 for dehydration, one friend worried Nicole was back on heroin (which she was busted for during her prior DUI arrest)."

"Insiders say Nicole has been using Adderall, a prescription drug normally used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and is a powerful appetite suppressant."

"She loves Adderall because she stays awake, and it makes her not want to eat. And she takes it even more when she's filming."

Although her rep denies that she uses the drug, a pal says Joel Madden's hot babe actually increased her dosage:

"She's taking more and more lately."

We just hope Britney Spears isn't reading this right now. The girl can't handle any more temptations. Or controlled substances. We're pulling for you, Jason Filyaw, to keep our girl clean!
