I use to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 60mg a day. Then I became pregnant so I quit. I just quit breastfeeding and started back on it but it's not working.?

In brief: May take time

It may take time to become more effective after the hormonal changes you have gone through.
Also the sleep deprivation can be a problem even on the medication. Talk with your doctor.

In brief: Check blood levels

Chemically, pregnancy sometimes results in significant changes in our pharmacogenomic expression profile.
The safest approach is to work with your doctor to monitor blood levels of the drug as you slowly titrate dose upward.
