Metadate CD Question-onset?

I just switch from Strattera (which made me sleepy, dizzy and well...I would have blended in really well at a nursing home! It whooped my butt!!!)
Anywho...I just started Metadate CD yesterday. When I was on straight ritalin (10mg 4x's a day max of 40mgs daily) Doc told me to eat then take the med...So, I figured that I would do the same with this...well DUH! its a time release...So, the question is...
Can anyone tell me what the onset of this med is? Obviously it takes a little longer to get into the system...I just need to fine tune it so that I can figure out how long that is...any insight?
