I am 15 weeks pregnant and took 30mgs of adderall only one time. Would that have harmed my baby in anyway?
I know of some women who took Adderall basically throughout their pregnancies (with doctor's okay) without it being problematic. I'm not advocating for or against it but coming from a neutral standpoint. My honest opinion is if you took it only once that early on, all will most likely be all right... & in any case, dwelling on it isn't going to help you or the little one. Keep moving forward. I think focusing on taking the best possible care of yourself & your baby with good pre-natal care is the best idea!
All the best ☺
I have 5 grown, married children with 14 grandchildren. I have had narcolepsy (un-diagnosed until I was around 55 yrs). My Father was a pharmacist... after having my sleepyness/tiredness checked out by Dr he and Dr placed me on Dexamyl which helped considerably. A strong lecture to never take more than one a day. I took that until my mid 30's through all 5 pregnancies! I recall asking the OB.GYN ABOUT CONTINUING as I was concerned also... and wondering how I would ever stay awake if it wasn't OK. He assured me it would be fine. Of course the times are changing but my children are all fine, college grads with children... so think you will be fine.
Just my opinion but I wouldn’t take it if you can. I took it with one of my kids and he is being tested for ADHD. I didn’t take it with my youngest and he seems fine.. I’m not saying it’s related but just go with your gut.. do research speak to those who have used it during pregnancy
