I am 4 months pregnant and i just found out that i was about a week ago, and i have been taking this pill for about 3 years now. i had been taking it while i am pregnant. so will this hurt the baby?
From this site: (Vyvanse is) FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether Vyvanse will harm an unborn baby. It could cause premature birth, low birth weight, or withdrawal symptoms in a newborn if the mother takes Vyvanse during pregnancy. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication. Lisdexamfetamine can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use Vyvanse without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

And a little more info: https://www.drugs.com/pregnancy/lisdexamfetamine.html
So basically, talk to your prescriber and also whoever you're seeing for your pregnancy to decide whether the benefits outweigh the risks.
God bless you and your baby.
