There is no data .: Many however believe you would feel better if you took the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) right after eating. Hope this helps.

Sick on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): You may feel sick 3 hours after taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) because the medication is peaking. Speak with your prescriber about a lower dose or a different medication. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can cause constipation. Try prune juice or an over the counter medication for constipation.

See below: Currently Adderall is prescribed to treat symptoms that cause a current impairment. If it is effective, one long-term consequence will be the ability to function, hold a job, etc for the years involved. There is some evidence that Ritalin (methylphenidate) (a different drug) in primary school children can lead to a benefit that lasts for a year or more. Data on Adderall are unclear. Addiction risk is another issue.

Extended release: Short acting stimulants cause crashes more easily than extended release formulations. Adderall in xr form or vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) would be alternatives in the same molecular class. Check with your prescribing doctor for alternative prescriptions.
