In brief: Maybe 70mg

70 (seventy) is the maximum daily dose.
But this med is a stimulant and can cause heart and blood pressure issues. It should not be increased by more than 10(ten) mg. A week.

In brief: Varies

Although the highest dosed capsule is 70 mg, the limit for individuals is exclusively driven by beneficial effect (fixing the problems, called "targeted outcomes") and untoward effect (side effects).
The amer acad ped published guidelines oct 2011 stating that there is no specific top dose for stimulants. The goal of treatment is to normalize the patient.

In brief: Depends

The dose depends on what you need to get a positive response.
Maximum dose depends on absorption, metabolism, excretion,which are individual. May need less or re than recommended 70 mg.
