I stopped taking my adderall for add when I found out I was pregnant. I'm 9 weeks. It's been awful. I cry all the time. I can't focus at all at work. I'm afraid I'm going to get fired. I don't know how I'm going to make it until May. Somehow I made it through okay during my 1st pregnancy, but this one is harder. I've got a lot more going on at work now, and a toddler at home.

I've been talking to my dr about taking Wellbutrin, as it is a second line treatment for adhd, and more comonly prescribed during pregnancy than adderall or any of the other stimulant drugs commonly used to treat adhd. Anyone done this? Did wellbutrin help your add/adhd symptoms at all? Anyone taken wellbutrin for depression during pregnancy?

I know someone who has taken Wellbutrin in pregnancy for depression but I'm not sure about ADHD. My ds has ADHD so I know exactly what your struggling with. I hope you find something that works for you.
