Default adderall ?

can adderall take weeks to start working? I just got started on adderall xr 30mg twice a day and it`s kinda hard to tell if it`s working. Is that a fairly high dosage?

Default Re: adderall ?

Hi Samuel, my son was prescribed this medication so I know a bit about it. It doens't take weeks to work, and from what I could see it affected him the same day he took it. It works immediately as far as I know, and yes two 30 mg a day sounds like the highest dose recommended. This would be taken once a day as far as I know, in the morning, so it will be out of your system by the time you go to bed as it may interfere with sleep. Hope this helps.

I take adderall 20mg 4x/day. before work, noon, when I get home and when starting or trying to complete a project. I can feel when it is working and when it's worn off right away. It's not that you go from 0 to 60 in ten seconds, it just helps to focus and pay attention more.

Adderall did nothing for me. I hated it. I am on Concerta XR and it works very well for me.
