No need to panic. If you already filed, you'll just need to wait until the IRS either accepts or rejects your return before you can add anything else. 
  • If they reject it, you just make the needed changes and re-submit the return. 
  • If they accept it, you will need to wait until you have received your refund and then amend that return to make changes. 
You can find amend instructions here How do I amend a 2017 return in TurboTax?

Amended returns must be printed and mailed. They cannot be e-filed per IRS regulations. 

Once you mail an amended return, it can take up to 3 weeks before it shows up in the IRS's system. So give it that amount of time before you start checking for any updates on it. After 3 weeks, you can go here Where’s My Amended Return? to check the status of it. 

Amended returns can take up to 16 weeks to be processed once they receive it. And you can find a list of frequently asked questions, about amended returns, here Form 1040X, Amended U.S. individual Income Tax Return, Frequently Asked Questions
