Re: How long does it take to "kick" in for you?

Drug metabolization can vary significantly from one person to the next, I wouldn't read into anything too much...

XR 20mg IR 5mg Both generic; I don't pay attention to brands as I haven't noticed a difference.
~1hr. It varies from day to day depending on diet. Part of the reason that I suspect it takes a while is b/c of my high blood pressure.

Re: How long does it take to "kick" in for you?

Not long, I don't think. Though I suppose there might be a difference between the amount of time it takes to feel a bit of a jolt, and the time that passes before I suddenly realize I've become productive.

Adderall 30mg.

I start feeling "something" happening about 15 minutes. I believe it has totally kicked around 45 minutes after.

Re: How long does it take to "kick" in for you?

Adderall XR=20 minutes (more or less)
Shire, Teva, Global (all manufactured by Shire), all the same amount of time to start working, no difference in any.

Adderall IR=15-20 minutes (more or less)
Corepharma, Barr. All the same amount of of time to start working, either works well for me, not a lot of difference between the two.

Drewbacca is right--metabolism plays a part in duration. For some people, diet plays a part as well. It did for me when I first started, now it doesn't.
