I was diagnosed with severe narcolepsy over a year ago. Initially I was taking 30mg ritalin for what I thought was chronic fatigue. My doctor would not increase it until I completed a sleep study. Results showed extremely narcolepsy. My 5 kids have also been diagnosed. My sleep doctor told me i was on the highest dose Adderall of 60mg a day. I've been doing research and i have seen that the 60mg dose is the highest for ADHD but the highest dose for narcolepsy is 90 MG. I love my Adderall but I'm still extremely tired.
Everything I've read recommends a MDD (maximum daily dosage) of 60mg/day in divided doses.
I'd discuss it with your doctor but she/he might be hesitant to prescribe a higher dosage because of the potential for habituation and adverse side effects. There are some newer medications on the market now that you might also ask your doctor about.
