In general, the dosage of Adderall should not be more than 40 mg per day total. The first dose of the day should be taken first thing in the morning. If taking Adderall two or three times a day, the next doses should be given after four to six hours.
However, please also check it with a doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med., take care.

this really depends on your diagnosis... the FDA maximum dosage is a guideline but not the holy grail of dosage criteria, especially with multiple-indication medication... for example, people who take stimulant meds for narcolepsy often take a much higher dose than people who are prescribed stimulant meds for ADHD...
as long as you are working with your HCP on your dosage, there is no right or wrong amount... some people have a slower metabolism and lower tolerance and find efficacy on a low dose, while other people, myself included, have a very high metabolism and take what is considered to be a higher dose (60 mg +)... this is for your HCP and u to decide...

There isn't a legal dosage limit on Adderall. However, too high a dose can hinder the effectiveness of the drug; Taking Adderall more frequently increases you risk for tolerance. Taking too high a dose can damage your receptors. Eventually 30mg might not work for you creating a vicious cycle.

Yes because I was on that dosage for several months, But I also have to take blood pressure medicines, like nifedipine and clonidine, to control headaches and hypertension, adderall is very addictive so you need to use it with care especially if given to a young person. It needs to be administered along with therapy because the medicine itself is not a cure-all, It just helps with some of the symptoms During stressful situations. I have since learned how to control my ADHD without the help of drugs. However my blood pressure never did return to normal where I had no issues with hypertension before I started taking Adderall.

Yes, my doctor RX me 2 30 mg instant release, one forst thing in am , and one at noon. It has turned my life around. Sometimes, I will slip a third one in, depending on how late I am out, but I know people that take 150-200 a day. Im not suggesting this, but with good nutrition and good heart it is fairly harmless , but everyone is different so ask a professional, cheers RC
