Adderall during pregnancy

Hello! I am 15 weeks pregnant and am on Adderall for ADD (and it also helps with my depression and anxiety). There is very little information available about this medication and its use during pregnancy. Before I was pregnant I took 30 MG a day (20 XR in the morining and a 10 MG in the afternoon). Now I just take a 20 XR during the week and nothing or a 10 MG on the weekends. I am curious as to whether anyone else is on it or was on it during their pregnancy and how things turned out.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I have been with my partner since i was 14, so I know he is the one for me, and we both feel ready to have a baby, we are in a stable place and it is all I have ever wanted.

However; I am on methotrexate, for rheumatoid arthritis, and I take a 5mg dose weekly, which, in January is due to be cut down to 2.5mg. do you think this will be a problem, if I do get pregnant? As I really want a baby now more than ever.

If it is due to be a problem, what will be the risks involved?

Many Thanks,
