Depends: Some patients need very little Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and some need very large doses. All patients are different. The highest dose for XR can vary tremendously but I have seen it as high as 60 mg XR ie 2 30mg pills at the same time.

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Depending on age, size & weight, i would not recommend higher than 60 mg. Daily & certainly no higher than 30 mg. At one time.

Unclear: Fda guidelines for max doses are methylphenidate (50 mg a day) & amphetamine (30 mg a day), but some folk need and tolerate higher doses. Adult max doses are still being worked out, with some evidence that 100 to 110 mg a day of methylphenidate--70-80 mg of adderall--may be needed and tolerated at times. If dose needs keep rising, reconsider diagnosis or try another type of medication.

There is no standard: Set beginner dose for adults. It can vary considerably given your past history of psychostulant use and ability to tolerate drugs of this class.
