Jenelle Evans caused a rumor storm this morning when she posted a photo of herself which revealed several pill bottles on her bathroom sink. The Teen Mom 2 star posted the photo to shut the mouths of people claiming she was pregnant, but ended up starting even more rumors. Then, during a chat session on Stickam earlier tonight, Jenelle explained exactly what she’s taking.
The first pill container was Ibuprofen 600’s which is just a stronger version of Ibuprofen — nothing out of the ordinary. It’s pretty much the equivalent of taking three Advil, 3x per day. Jenelle is likely taking this because of her recent surgery.
The second contained Lorazepam, an extremely addictive benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety. Due to it’s high tolerance and dependence, it is recommended for short-term use, up to two to four weeks only.
She is also taking Trazadone, an antidepressant. This is the go-to drug in rehabilitation as it is the safest, non-addictive way of helping addicts to sleep while coming off drugs.
The fourth medication was Ondansetron, an anti-nausea medication. This drug is sometimes used as an effective way of treating withdrawal symptoms of opioid addictions. It is also non-addictive.
Next up was Lamictal which Jenelle takes to treat her bipolar disorder.
When it came to the last bottle, Jenelle picked it up, but did not disclose what it was. She instead said, “What is this? What is this? I think it’s an antibiotic.”
Jenelle has been fighting off rumors of drug use for months now and while that last bottle remains a mystery, the other medications are not something that will give her a “high” — as long as she takes them as prescribed.
