I just found out I was 5 wks pregnant and have been drinking energy drinks and been on adderall (adderrall) for the past 2 weeks, but stopped as soon as I found out I was pregnant. I was wondering how bad this is?
Adderall (adderrall) is in FDA pregnancy category C drug. It is not known whether Adderall (adderrall) will harm a developing embryo or foetus. But it is best to stop it during pregnancy. Also avoid energy drinks. Good healthy diet, regular exercise and prenatal vitamins will be good for the pregnancy. An ultrasound scan must be done to assess the status of the baby. Consult a gynaecologist and a psychiatrist for an evaluation. Hope this helps.
Take care & good luck.
