    How long does adderall stay in your breastmilk?

    Well after 3 days of trying adderall I have decided to just wait. I was taking concerta and still nursing my 13 month old 1x a day in the AM but the concerta started to make me sleepy. So we went to try the adderall XR 20mg 1x a day but then I didn't sleep. I did calm down though-so yesterday took my 20, but got a RX for 10 mg and took that today and just felt nothing other then tired. I am just very frustrated. I have such guilt about not nursing anymore so I think I am just going to stop taking the meds for now.The only reason why I started taking them again was to help with going back to get my RN. I have been pumping that one time in morning and dumping.....Could I possibly nurse him tomorrow morning? around 9? My last dose was today at 8 am.........

    I am sorry that I am rambling but I just feel kinda of like a mess. I am tired and loopy... part of me wonders if I should just try the 15mg tomorrow and see what happens but I really miss nursing him too and I just feel like poop right now.... is there anything out there that is natural that I could try? I know it seems like a lot of the stuff isn't worth the $

    Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.

     

    It is impossible to say exactly how long a medication will stay in your system because everyone metabolizes medication at a different rate.

     

    The medication may be out of your system in as little as two days and as long as 10 days.

      But what about in Breast Milk? Does "pumping and dumping" not help? How would/can the drug continue to be in the new breast milk?

      I am not a medical professional and this is something you should speak to your doctor about. From what I have been told, most doctors do not recommend taking Adderall while you are breast feeding.
