Nicole Richie and Drugs: Adderall to Stay SkinnyI really hope this is not true, but according to In Touch Weekly, insiders say Nicole Richie has been using Adderall – a prescription drug normally used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and a powerful appetite suppressant.

“She loves Adderall because she stays awake, and it makes her not want to eat,” says a close pal. “She hides it from a lot of people, unless they take it, too. And she takes it even more when she’s filming.”

Introduced to the drug nearly a year ago, Nicole stopped taking it when she dropped to 85 pounds and her loved ones urged her to undergo treatment to gain weight. “When she quit taking Adderall for a while, she put on weight and everyone got off her back,” says another friend.

“But now, she doesn’t want to gain any more, so she’s started taking the pills again.” Being on TV has made Nicole more focused on her looks. According to another pal, Nicole is so fearful of getting heavier that she only eats one meal a day.

“Nicole is so obsessed with being a star,” says an insider. “The skinnier she gets, the more attention she gets, so that’s why she’s so slim again.”

Although her rep denies that Nicole Richie uses the drug, a pal says she’s actually increased her dosage. “She’s taking more and more lately,” says a pal, who has also taken the drug and says Nicole has had it prescribed to her, but the drug is also available from dealers.

“The longer you take it, the more you need.” Some of her friends are worried. “We all try to keep an eye on her,” says a close friend, who adds that “Nicole thinks she needs it.”

For her loved ones, that need is disturbing. Back in 2003, Nicole went through rehab for heroin addiction. And she admitted using other drugs recently.

In December, she was arrested for DUI and police say she admitted using Vicodin and marijuana. As her friend points out, “Adderall is addictive, and she has an addictive personality.”

But experts say that quick fixes like drugs are not only dangerous, they also don’t work in the long run.

“If you abuse it, you will have weight loss,” Florida nutritionist Dr. Maurice Ramirez, who hasn’t treated Nicole, tells In Touch. “But it won’t just be fat, it will be muscle and bone mass.”
