1 doctor agrees
In brief: Varies
Dosage for any stimulant varies widely across individuals--so much so that the only real way to decide on best dose is to try several, balancing increased benefit against emerging side effects.
For adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) the range usually is somewhere between 5 to 30 mg--& size, age, & gender have little effect. Once you find the dose, though, it should stay about there, maybe increasing if you get bigger.
