Taking adderall for low sperm motility. Will it get cured by this medicine?

My husband and I are having issues conceiving. His sperm count is high, motility is a little bit low, and morphology is quite low (15% are shaped normally and doc. says it needs to be 70% normal shapes). His doctor has prescribed him ADDERALL for his newly diagnosed ADHD . Will this drug affect his sperm in any way at all? Would it be better to have him wait to take this drug until I can conceive? Thank you SO much for any information you can give!

Hello dear...
Adderall is Amphetamine, which is a CNS stimulant.
Though interference with sperm count or morphology has not been reported as a side effect of Adderall, the studies have shown the individuals taking amphetamine to have decreased libido and sex drive.
So...if you are planning to conceive, then consult with your Gynecologist.
Otherwise it will be better to wait till your husband completes his medicines.
Make sure he is taking his medications regularly, having a healthy balanced diet & avoiding stress, alcohol and smoking.
Wishing a good health.
Thanks & take care
