It takes about 3-4 hours for the medication to reach it's peak. Take it with something basic (milk instead of coke or coffee) to improve absorption.

It seems about 30 to 45 minutes. Usually, I find that I know when meds kick in.


Milk commonly has a pH that is within the range of about 6.5-6.7 making it slightly acidic, not basic. Just sayin.

What to do if Adderall makes you tired?

That depends on a few things but my general answer is as follows. Fatigue is a possible symptom of adderall overdose. Definitely do not continue to take more thinking that a larger dose will wake you back up again. If you've been taking adderall for a long time then the fatigue may simply mean that your body has become tolerant of your usual dose. Adderall could also be interacting with some other medication you've taken and potentiating that particular med. That means that if you've taken adderall with benedryl, it is possible that the adderall is making your benedryl more effective and increasing benedryl's side effect of sleepiness. More detail about how much adderall you've taken and any other meds/drugs is necessary to correctly answer your question.

How long before adderall starts to work?

If you are taking Adderall for ADHD or narcolepsy, when you first start taking it, you may start to feel its effects in about an hour. However, as you keep taking it, your brain will develop a tolerance to it which will cause its effect to continued to be delayed. If you are on it long enough, it may take 3 to 4 hours before it becomes effective and, indeed, it may not become effective for you at all until the second dose kicks in.

How long does immediate release 10 Mg adderall last?

Whatever the dosage, immediate release Adderall peaks after four hours. If you have ADHD or narcolepsy, it will bring your performance level above your normal level. When you take the second dose, however, it will actually cause your performance level to rise above that achieved by the first dose. They speak of this as Adderall having two curves. The first dose creates the first curve, then the second dose creates a second curve which brings your performance level above the peak achieved by the first curve.
