Subcutaneous injection of codeine or phenobarbital, and feeding amphetamine to rats during gestation and lactation caused irregularities in mortality rates, growth, development, and associated neuroendocrine events within the newborns. Most striking was the subnormal birth size, increased mortality rate, and decreased hypothalamic growth hormone-releasing activity of neonates of mothers fed the highest dose of amphetamine.
