There are very few supplements especially for ADHD that are helpful. It’s hard to make up for the dopamine and GABA deficiencies and some would also argue norepinephrine. I’m on Dex 10-40 daily tabs but there is literally a ton of risk with amphetamines and pregnancy with the heart and elevated arousal of the nervous system. Withdrawal is inevitable and even with tapers on ADHD meds I withdrawal like hell, so just be prepared that even with the best of tapers on stimulants they are HARSH with withdrawal as I know from many drug holidays of torturous mood swings and short-term memory issues, etc.
