Proper Usage

Take Adderall® exactly as prescribed. Your doctor may adjust the dose until it is right for you or your child.

Adderall® tablets are usually taken two to three times a day. The first dose is usually taken when you first wake in the morning. One or two more doses may be taken during the day, 4 to 6 hours apart. Adderall® can be taken with or without food.

From time to time, your doctor may stop Adderall® treatment for a while to check ADHD symptoms.

Your doctor may do regular checks of the blood, heart, and blood pressure while taking Adderall®. Children should have their height and weight checked often while taking Adderall®. Adderall® treatment may be stopped if a problem is found during these check-ups.
