adult with add - adderall not working?

I have been put on 30mg of adderall xr since last week and am still going thru testing. they know i am ADHD but the adderall doesn't seem to be doing anything! I have heard so many people feel it help them right away and say it changed their lives for the better. I feel NOTHING. Could this be possible? I thought the effects were immediate.

Oh well - just wondering any one else who tried adderall and if it always works 100% or is it more of a subtle change?

Thom, I basically felt "better" within a day or so when I started Adderall. I take the regular release and take half in the am and another half at noon. I'm also taking Wellbutrin. My doctor tried Ritalin for me and another Rx (can't remember what it was)first and I did not like them. So maybe ask your doctor to try a different medication? Everyone reacts differently to medications. Take care and good luck.

my son started on regular adderall and we tried xr. He said the xr didn't do anything for him so we switched back to regular.
