Amanda Bynes Was Under the Influence of Adderall During DUI Arrest: Report

More details are coming to light after news broke that Amanda Bynes was arrested over the weekend for a DUI, and now the prescription drug Adderall seems to have played a role.

According to TMZ, Amanda was under the influence of the drug, which was prescribed by her doctor.

The site also reports that Amanda‘s conservatorship ended earlier this month and her parents did not feel the need to extend it because they believe she is better. Other sources say Amanda, who is now living on her own, is smoking marijuana and is off her prescription anti-psychotics.

    She’s UGLY.

    I hope Amanda gets well. Prescription drugs can be more dangerous than some street drugs.

    I would ignore all “sources” other than those coming from Amanda herself, her parents, lawyer or the police department who are dealing with her DUI. The rest is most likely made up. She wouldn’t be prescribed anti-psychotics if she weren’t diagnosed mentally ill and her mother and lawyer both stated that she did not have a diagnosis and was not prescribed anything at the time. Presumably her doctor prescribed her Adderall, which is given for ADHD, after that statement but there is no way it would be prescribed in conjunction with anti-psychotics as they have opposing mechanisms and there would be no point. So either she took too much and it impaired her driving ability, or she was also under the influence of pot, which was reported earlier. Claims about her being “off meds” and in the midst of some psychotic episode are sensationalist and clearly fabricated nonsense. This may well be a complete non-issue, unless of course she was high in which case she should be charged with a DUI. Plenty of people have “issues” and make dumb choices in life – does mean they have schizophrenia or whatnot so people really need to stop playing armchair psychiatrist and it puts alot of false information and ideas out there.

    This is usually a managed type of case and for dependent ppl it is probably best to have a ‘Depo’ injection once a fortnight rather than try to manage her own medication.
    It can be a voluntary admission for some patients with a mental illness, who need the regularity in their life and this often starts with medication.
