I stopped taking Adderrall a month before I conceived. I have been off of it since and my baby is now four months old. I am starting to have difficulty focusing, concentrating, getting things done and it's interfering with my daily routine anymore. I am thinking about starting my Adderrall again. I ran it past my pediatrician and he didn't think it would be a problem. I work 8-5 and nurse my baby before work and when I get home from work if she is hungry. I nurse her again around 8 pm before she goes to bed. I also pump twice at work.
My friend who started her ADD medication when she was breastfeeding her four month old had a decrease in milk supply. She also said her breasts felt deflated and her hair started to fall out. Is there a relation between this medication drying milk supply up/interfering with hormone balance? I have a gracious milk supply presently and don't want to lose it.
