It depends: If you are talking about using a prescribed dose once or twice a day one every ten weeks or even one week in prescribed doses once or twice a day for that week then the person will focus well on the day or days when the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is taken. When med is not taken their focus will be the usual. If you are talking about taking a lot of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) that one day or if it is not prescribed do not do this.
