Taking adderall for ADD. Going for a drug test. How long will it take adderall to be out of the system once stopped?

Hi My daughter takes adderall for her ADD. She is 25 years old and only began taking the drug 2 or 3 years ago. Although her doctor recommended that she take it everyday, she only takes it when she goes to school (college), if she thinks she needs it. The last time she took her capsule was Monday of this week. She will be taking a drug test because of work, but doesn t want her new place of employment to know she takes adderall. How long will it take for the Adderall to be completely out of her system and not show up in her blood work? Thanks

in Adults: adserall has a half life of: 10-13 hours

Excretion: Urine (highly dependent on urinary pH); 70% of a single dose is eliminated within 24 hours

so the above means the adderall will be washed out from her body till wednesday..... and her test will be negative ......just drink more fluids and healthy diet
take care
