  • Vyvanse and Pumping - 3.5 Month Old

    Hello -

    Is it recommended to pump and dump after taking Vyvanse 70mg? Additionally, if I titrate the drug in some water (which I've done in the past - pre-pregnancy - to lower the dose if I don't need a full dose in a day) is the drug out of my system quicker? I have not taken any meds since I founds out I was pregnant, but started back to work and will need at least a small dose. My daughter is currently exclusively breast fed either through nursing or pumped bottles at daycare. I don't want my supply to suffer by not pumping, and also hate to waste milk unnecessarily. Any recommendations or new research on this drug?

    Thank you!

    Vyvanse is rated an L3-limited data-probably compatible. The amount that transfers into breast milk is 1.8-6.2% of your dose. We recommend keeping the dose low at 20-30mg a day, avoiding the peak time of 3.5 hours, the half-life is about 7 hours. Monitor your infant for agitation, irritability, poor sleeping patterns, poor weight gain.
