Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

There I have read through your question and understand your concern. Adderall contains amphetamine which may lead to false negative pregnancy test. The only way to know is to get an ultrasound done. It is the only confirmatory test to rule out or confirm a pregnancy.

I hope that answers your question. If you have any further questions please feel free to write. Thank you for choosing healthcare magic.

Take care
