I am on adderall SR 25 twice daily and 10 mg short acting in

This answer was rated:

I am on adderall SR 25 twice daily and 10 mg short acting in the am. I feel as though I still need a little boost in the late pm/ early am but am concerned because I seem to be on a high dosage. Is there a maximum dose for adults?
Hi debmd,

You're not on the highest dose's 30mg per capsule. In the official literature, it shows that doses above 20mg don't appear to have any increased positive effect in adults. I'll beg to differ from that, as I've seen people on more, and they both needed it and did fine. Also, as long as you're getting them from one pharmacist, they'll alert you if your doctor over prescribes, so you've got 2 safeguards in place.

My best to you.
