    I was prescribed adderrall today and I am taking it legally for the first time. I recently did the research on ADD and found I fit ALOT of the symtoms. It was scary. Especially hyperfocus. That I always did but didnt know there was anything wrong, or it was called something. I guess my question is how do I get my doctor to up my dose on the next visit 30 days from now? Im used to 60-80. I don't want to seem like a drug seeker and get it taken away because of my history. But I actually need it it seems. I took my usual dose which is 30-40mg orally and I feel like I took a xanax, everything is calm and serene and I can focus, its amazing!! So how do I get him to increase the dose without look like a junkie? READ MORE

    Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.


    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.


    I would suggest keeping a log of how the medication is working. There is suggestions on how to create a chart to keep track of your progress: How Do You Know if a Treatment is Working


    You can then share this information with your doctor at your next visit. It will show what areas you still want to improve and help you explain to your doctor why you don't believe this is the right dosage for you.


    I hope this helps
