Question Adderall with a meal or milk?

I recently read somewhere online (can't remember the source, but it seemed credible..) that Adderall's effectiveness is increased if taken along with a meal. Is this true? I've always imagined the opposite... Also-- does drinking milk decrease its effectiveness? Thanks in advance for any responses.

The only info for this drug is to be sure to take it with a full glass of water. Taking it with or without food doesn't matter and if you take it with milk be sure to drink a full glass of milk with it. It needs to be taken with a full glass of liquid.

I can't quote specific sources or sites, but I did read that a study found that a high fat breakfast can reduce the effectiveness of Adderall. My son's Dr. mentioned it at first and I went looking and did find something on it.

Remember, there's a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.
