I have been diagnosed with ADD, mood disorder and depression. As of right now I am only taking adderall which works well with me but I want to know if taking higher than 60mg a day would be ok for me. I'm also curious to know what doses of other people taking adderall are these days? Also, is there some type of program that can help people financially who have no health insurance and are unemployed at the moment? Medications can be expensive these days? I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks so much.

Although I don't take Adderall, based on what I read of the literature 60mgs is a maxed out dose. I wouldn't recommend going any higher particularly if it is working. Unfortunately the manufacturer of Adderall, Shire Pharmacueticals no longer offers a patient assistance program, but you can check the two following programs by googling them:
Partnership for Prescription Assistance
They maybe of some help.
- Adderall Information for Consumers
- Adderall Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
- Side Effects of Adderall (detailed)
