In my case it takes 20 - 30 minutes for a half a 20mg. I was prescribed 20 mg a.m. but have yet to take more than 10. I think I would have vibrated myself into pieces if I started with 20.

Hehehehehe, that is funny.

We all seem to respond differently. You should notice some effect from 20mg Adderall within an hour or two tops. Whether the effect is calmer vibs, is another matter altogether.

Your doctor most likely gave you a trial dose of Adderall. Report your reactions. Your doctor should tweak the dose and possibly the med until "calmer vibs" or best effect is discovered.

I was prescribed my first ADD meds only about a week ago. I'm taking the 20 mg XR Adderall (timed released capsules). It takes about 30 min for me to start feeling the affects. I was very surprised how evenly throughout the day and evening I feel as far as energy and feeling alert and focused (energy level was a joke prior to taking them). What a relief... I hope it continues to work as well as it has. Life feels much better, now!
