Adderall help!

I was just recently diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and was prescribed adderall(sp?). Today is the third day that I have taken it and still feel no effects. My neurologist told me I did not have to take it every day, so I have only taken it on my busy days. Do I need to take the drug on consecutive days for it to have it's effect? I do not feel any different while on the drug at all and am wondering if spreading the doses out could be the cause of this.

Thanks for any input!

Re: Adderall help!

What dose are you taking? What time of the day do you take it?

Re: Adderall help!

You should ask your doctor if you need to go up to 20?

I take 10mg when I get up and it helps me tremendously. Sometimes I'll take a 1/2 (5mg) about noon, but never too late in the day because I don't want it affecting my sleep at night.

Good luck!
