The alarm is probably your best bet. If you’re ignoring it, set it so that you can’t. Have 3 alarms every 15 minutes instead of just one, for instance. If you’re forgetting your medication at home, can you take half a bottle to leave at work? Locked in a desk drawer perhaps?

Or maybe your doctor would be willing to prescribe the long-acting Adderall so you only have to take it once a day in the morning?
