Justin Bieber took ADHD medicine because he struggled to concentrate

Justin Bieber has revealed that he has been taking medicine commonly prescribed for ADHD because he is struggling to concentrate.

In an interview with GQ, the Canadian said that he took the drug for about one year.

He was given Adderall because he struggles to concentrate during the day due to lack of sleep.

Bieber said: "I think I’m about to get off of it because I feel like it’s giving me anxiety.

"The doctor’s been telling me that the reason I haven’t been able to concentrate during the day is because I’m not getting restful sleep, so during the day I need [Adderall] to concentrate because I’m not getting the proper - you know, when you sleep, your body creates endorphins, creates these things, and when you’re not getting that sleep."

The 21-year-old added that he hoped to replace the drug with "something really natural, like a natural sleep aid. That’s what I’m going to New York for."

Later in the interview, Bieber confirmed that he had stopped taking the medicine.
