ADHD Home > Adderal and Pregnancy

Were you looking for more information about Adderall and Pregnancy? Adderal and pregnancy is a common misspelling of Adderall and pregnancy.
In studies on Adderall® (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) and pregnancy, the medication caused miscarriages and birth defects when it was given to pregnant mice. Since animals do not always respond to drugs the same way that humans do, however, Adderall can still be prescribed to a pregnant woman if her healthcare provider believes that the benefits outweigh any possible risks. If you are taking Adderall and pregnancy occurs, notify your healthcare provider immediately.
