Question Adderall: take on an empty or full stomach?

When is it better to take my meds, with or without a full stomach? - Thanks.

I would say to take Adderal on a full stomach. Not that it will mess you up if you take it on an empty stomach. However in my case Adderal supresses my appetite and I wont have the desire to eat for hours and hours. If I didn't start out with a full stomach I'll tend to overeat once it wears off.

Me too. I always take it with meals. On an empty stomach, it kicks in so hard and fast and then I'm not hungry, get busy focusing on something and then when I do eat, there's the major crash.

So, I would recommend taking it on a full stomach to keep your appetite healthy.

It definatley does take away your appetite. I take mine one four times a day (if im working) or two twice a day if i'm not because the XR just stopped working after a while, even with a 10mg dose in the afternoon. I am a food server in a restaurant and work with food under my nose all day. I usually never want to eat anything even on my break. I do find myself with a very strange insatiable thirst for diet coke. Not even counting the diet soda i drink at work I probably drink around a 12-pack or 4liters a day..I guess this isnt too good either. If i try to eat after I have taken the adderall i generally feel yucky and sick to my stomach after only a few bites. So by 8 or 9 at night, a few hours after the last dose, I want to eat everything under the sun before bed. No good. bah.
