I have been taking Adderall for about a year, and it has made a huge difference in my life, both socially and because I don't drink any more in an effort to calm down. Two days ago, I read in an eHow article that I should eat at least one hour before taking Adderall and not eat again for two hours, because eating too soon before or after Adderall can decrease its effectiveness. I've never heard this eating time information before. Is this, in fact, the correct way to take Adderall? I will certainly follow this if it's true, but it makes taking Adderall a little more difficult with my schedule. Thanks for your help!
