No. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is an amphetamine-like medication used to treat adhd and is not safe for use in pregnancy or nursing. Although there are few satisfactory alternatives to treat adhd during pregnancy, the risk of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) on the developing fetus is too high to consider its use.
No. Vyvance, which is a stimulant medication requires metabolism in the liver, after which it is turned into an amphetamine. Amphetamines can be dangerous to a developing fetus and can also be excreted in breast milk. Exposing a fetus or infant to amphetamines is not at all good and could lead to lots of problems. Please discuss this very important matter with your doctor and good luck.
I'm breastfeeding my two week old. I'm ADD, if I take my Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 70mg (nursing) how long will it hit my breastmilk and long do I need to dump till gon?
Mainly 10-12 hours. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is present in small quantities in breast milk, and not enough studies have been done to prove safety, but generally found not to be harmful. Nurse just before taking meds and then discard for the next 10-12 hours to minimize all exposure. In addition, there may be a small effect on milk production, which may be a problem when just building milk supply.
