Does anyone's husband/partner take adderol for ADHD? I was wondering the possible effects of TTC.

Any ADHD medication needs to be out of the system before trying to conceive, only because they don't know the effects that it will have on the baby, but generally that is to women who are on ADHD medications. As far as your husband goes.. I truly have no clue. I do know (as someone diagnosed with severe ADHD and was on Concerta as well as Wellbutrin) ADHD is often genetically linked to the child's father. So, your baby will more than likely have a propensity for it, but doesn't necessarily mean that he/she will have it. And if he/she does you always go to an early development therapist who can help you until the child is around age three and can be medicated. Another thing, in case you're concerned about this and want husband off of the meds it would take three months to be completely out of the system depending on how long he was on it and the dosage.. but please don't try cold turkey. Withdrawl from Adderall is a b___h to go through and needs to be seriously monitored by a psychopharmacologist. Much love****

Thanks SugarPie! I hate that he takes it, but does need it. Works better and is more focused, thats for sure. I would hate for him to suffer while TTC, though.... know what I mean?

Trust me, you don't want him off of it. You'll be in misery. That said, I truly have no idea what effects it has, but you know.. some women will actually take Adderall while preggers!! So, I can't see how him having it in his system will do "major damage", but I'm not a doctor so I can't say for sure. That said, just go and have fun! TTC and consult his psychopharm in the interim. Much love***
