Thanks for writing to us.
I can understand your concern.
Pregnant women should not take Adderall. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Adderall is a pregnancy category C drug. That means studies show side effects from Adderall in pregnant animals, but there’s not enough evidence from studies in people to be conclusive.
It should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
The drug has not been confirmed as safe to use during pregnancy. There haven’t been any well-controlled studies that look at the drug’s effects in pregnant women, and there have been negative reports of using the drug during pregnancy.
It is advisable for you to visit your doctor who may carry out ultrasound at regular intervals to rule out any harm to foetus. Additionally you should start with folate to prevent any birth defects.
Hope this helps.
