  • within 2 hours, if this is given to a child, it should be given ASAP in the morning, breakfast should already be over or getting breakfast with it, it is stimulus med and they will not be very hungry on it, after it takes effect... The med lasts about 10-12 hours and can interfer with bedtime if given to late in the day, once it wears off feed your child as much as they want and a bedtime snack is a good idea, try to have healthy but filling things around the house. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me

  • How old are you? Dr. like to start low and work up, you really should not feel anything but you should be more calmer, able to focus and complete your tasks easier. IF after a few days you still are the "same" call your Dr, the dose might not be enough for you, to save money have him write you a week prescription, if that dose works have him write a 30 day supply.... ADHD meds are all trial and error and sometimes it takes time to find the right dose and or med.
