Bynes says trying Adderall was the beginning of the end for her. Bynes says she read an article about the drug stating ‘it could make you thin’. She said she went to a psychiatrist and said she suffered from ‘Attention deficient disorder’ so she could get a legal prescription for the drug. She quickly started abusing the drug, and says she was always high, when trying to work, it became impossible. The public started to speculate about Bynes being on drugs in 2010, when she pulled out of the film ‘Hall Pass’. Now sober for more than 4 years, she credits her parents for ‘always standing by me’.
