Usually the more water in your body the longer Adderall will stay in your system – this is because the drug is hydrophilic
Food in your system
This is always a factor with anything you take – the food you eat.
The food you in your system adds more time to how long your body takes to metabolize the contents of your stomach.
The more food in your system, the longer it will take to process the Adderall.
PH levels of your urinary and gastrointestinal tracts effect how long Adderall stays in your system.
With a high PH level, your kidneys take longer to process Adderall and exit your body via urinary tract. A lower PH level is likely to eliminate the drug faster from your system faster since the drug is in hydrophilic state.
Organs have an important role in ridding the body of drugs like Adderall.
This process is slower when an organ doesn’t work as it should. The drug may remain in the system longer than normal or even recirculated if your kidneys aren’t functioning as they should.
This also applies to your liver. Your liver plays a role in metabolizing substances in your body, the process will slow if the liver is not functioning as it should be.
