- Once-a-day dosing. Qelbree is a once-a-day non-stimulant medication for ADHD.
- Can be taken any time of day. If you forget to take your regularly scheduled dose, you don't have to skip that day. Take it as soon as you remember.
- Full-day coverage. With a combination of rapid and extended release, Qelbree provides reliable medication coverage throughout the day.
- Convenient refills. As a non-stimulant, Qelbree can be refilled without needing monthly doctor’s visits for new monthly prescriptions.
- Can be taken with or without food. The Qelbree capsule can be swallowed whole or sprinkled on applesauce or pudding. Do not cut, crush, or chew the capsules.*
*Once added to the applesauce, Qelbree should be all consumed, without chewing, within two hours. Once added to pudding, Qelbree should be all consumed, without chewing, within 15 minutes. Do not store for future use.
Adults build up to the right dose in as soon as 2 weeks
Because Qelbree is a non-stimulant, its dosing options may look different from other ADHD medications.
Typical titration period
Your doctor will typically start you on a lower dose and may adjust it gradually over the first 1-2 weeks until you reach the dose that’s right for you, which could be anywhere from 200 mg to 600 mg. This process is called titration.
When to expect results
As a non-stimulant medication, Qelbree is designed to build gradually in the body. We call this having a “gradual onset.” This means it could take a few weeks for your medication to feel fully effective.
Qelbree is proven to work in medical studies that were conducted over 6–8 weeks—showing significant reduction in ADHD symptom scores in 4 medical studies of more than 1400 people. Qelbree reduced ADHD symptom scores as early as week 2 for some adults.
This gradual onset builds a steady foundation of coverage—side-stepping the peaks and crashes commonly experienced with most stimulant medications.

Set a once-daily treatment reminder on your phone. That's one less thing to remember and one less decision to make.
Try storing your medication in the same place. It's hard to take your medication when you can't find your medication.
Consider using a pill organizer. It'll help avoid the, “Wait, did I take my pill today?”
Aim for progress, not perfection. Perfectionism can be a hurdle for people with ADHD. Be patient with yourself as you adjust to your routine.
