Lindsay Lohan is taking the same drugs as Heath Ledger

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan is using the same drugs Heath Ledger was using when he died, according to the actress' father, Michael.

Michael Lohan claims Lindsay - who recently paid homage to Marilyn Monroe in a topless photo shoot - has been prescribed many of the same drugs tragic star Heath was taking when he died of an accidental drugs overdose in his Downtown Manhattan apartment last month.

He said: "Even before Heath's death, I told Lindsay that I'm very concerned about the pills she's taking. Doctors had Lindsay on Oxycontin when she broke her wrist.

"They also had her on Adderall for her Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Xanax for depression and anxiety and Ambien for insomnia."

Michael - who visited the 'Mean Girls' star when she was receiving treatment for her drug addictions in Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab clinic last year - is worried about doctors' readiness to prescribe medication for troubled young people.

He added to America's In Touch Weekly magazine: "I'm not only fearful for Lindsay, but for all the other kids out there. Most of these young people shouldn't be on some of these medications - instead, they should get spiritual guidance, counselling and exercise.

"These new drugs get into their bones and bloodstreams and they have to detox to get off them or they can have seizures or possibly die."
