In brief: Wait...

..You should ask your prescribing physician's office tomorrow if it's safe to stop or take a break, and, if so, how to go about it.
It's not prudent to do so otherwise. Good luck.

In brief: Taper the dose

I would strongly recommend against stopping cold turkey.
Work with your doctor to gradually reduce your dose.

In brief: Just stop

You can just take some days off.
Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) works for a few hours after you take it, and then stops. There is no long term effect when taken as prescribed. Be sure to tell your doctor.
