Hi; I'm on 70mg elvanse, I have been for about 3 months; I've seen improvements but it's not at all enough. I know that it's the maximum dose. I got told by my doctor that You can go past it. does any one have any experience of going past 70mg, and if so how high were you aloud To go? Or what is the highest dose you've heard some one be prescribed. I am very worried as I have a basic idea of the sort of dose I need but it exceeds the limit by quite a lot; (Please help)
I feel exactly the same. If I wanna be symptom free for a job at say 09:00 so take @ 07:30....return of symptoms by 13:00. I’m sure atleast 50mg in AM & same in PM would be much better for me. Your Doctor atleast seems open & reasonable, mine is really HARD work.
I've been on 120 for years. It's not enough and it doesn't last me the working day. 4 - 6 hours I get and that's me being incredibly generous.
I vaguely remember reading some sort of technical study that I didn't understand that suggested 90 is actually the max effective dose.
Having now suffered months of unemployment two years in a row, I'm reasonably sure it's time for a change of some sort. I've avoided bringing it up in my reviews because I fear I'm going to lose my shit if they're anything less than extremely forthcoming. I think I have to train myself to hear the 'no' again but part of me is just not willing to hear it in this instance.
I just got prescribed 90mg off license, I have my next review in two months time, I don't know if I can go up after that. If you get told you can't go up any more, can you get I solicitor and go to court to fight your case? And if not is there any over way around this problem, like a different dr who is known for prescribing high doses
I don't believe a higher dose is, necessarily, the right answer.
If there's resistance in the body, that should be explored or some other drug tried.
I've spoken to some ADHDers who are having to split a 30mg dose because they find it too strong. Understanding why might help the rest of us take lower doses but achieve greater bioavailability or something.
These drugs almost certainly accelerate the aging process. I don't want to be taking more, I just want what I have to take to work as well as it possibly can.
The thought of having endless pointless discussions and extra trips to the GP or the CMHT just kinda annoys me tbh. Life is too short for this shit?
I would like to try taking a second dose of Elvanse later in the day - I tried some dexamfetamine 'boosters' but I didn't get on with them at all.
I currently take 50mg Elvanse in the morning so I assume the doc won't want to prescribe more than 20mg, if anything, but I can't imagine that this will be overly effective.
She's also made quite a big deal of me not taking my meds 'too late', although I haven't had any problems with sleep even if I take them at lunch time... which also makes me think she'll be reluctant. Ho hum.
shiveringsky: Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!That moment when someone who knows you forever gets annoyed you dont remember instructions unless written down, but you;re still to blame when you miss something. Apologies if you hear my head exploding wherever you are.

lepetitprince: so, the most acute issue I’m facing is my social worker and CMHT not referring me for an advocate which I desperately need to challenge a court ruling to evict me from my council home despite being v ill. This was at the request of the TMO
