Husband and i are trying to conceive. I am healthy and not on any meds but he is (adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 40mg). Are there risks of birth defects due to his meds?
Nope.: Dad's Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has nothing to do with teratogenicity risk for the resulting embryo. The reason for the medication, though, may be inherited and your offspring may be at increased risk for adhd. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more

Since there is a lack of large scale studies on this and many other meds, it cannot be put in class A, the safest, but it is about as safe as true research can show. ...Read more
Many reasons: First, are they really increasing, or are they just living. Up until recently in history most of those pregnancies with defects would miscarry or the baby die rapidly after birth. Now we save these pregnancies and children. However, if increase, it is likely the many environmental exposures we have in the industrial age, both in the air we breath and perhaps the foods we eat. ...Read more

No known value: There is no one value that one can say causes birth defects. More important is at what stage of fetal development exposure occured and how persistent it was.

From Package insert : Use of drugs that act on the renin-angiotensin system during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy reduces fetal renal function and increases fetal and neonatal morbidity and death. Resulting oligohydramnios can be associated with fetal lung hypoplasia and skeletal deformations. Potential neonatal adverse effects include skull hypoplasia, anuria, hypotension, renal failure, and death. ...Read more
Renal failure.: Oligohydramnios, due to decreased fetal renal function, may lead to fetal lung hypoplasia and skeletal malformations. Use is associated with anuria, hypotension, renal failure, skull hypoplasia, and death in the fetus/neonate. The exposed fetus should be monitored for fetal growth, amniotic fluid volume, and organ formation. Infants exposed should be checked for hyperkalemia, hypotension, oliguria. ...Read more

Because the kids were not overwhelmed with "junk". They were healthy! ...Read more
