Dextroamphetamine. The majority of information on amphetamine during lactation is based on illicit amphetamine exposure and not from therapeutic maternal use. Amphetamines are excreted into breast milk and can lead to decreased milk production. Increased irritability, agitation, and crying have been reported in nursing infants. The manufacturer recommends that mothers taking dextroamphetamine refrain from nursing.
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.?
Is there anyway to breastfeed and resume taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?
Yes. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) in normal therapeutic doses is considered relatively safe durin breast feeding.Some infants may become irritable, lose weight or not sleep because of increased sensitivity, but most do not.
