I believe most would go up to 60mg max going by FDA guidelines.

Australia isn't interested in FDA guidelines...

Perhaps a more important question is: how well is your current dose working for you, and what about it isn't working so well?
Increasing the dose to the maximum allowed by doctors and/or law isn't necessarily the most effective approach; some detailed troubleshooting with your doctor could help.

30mg or 60mg at a time or spread out?

My doctor prescribed me 10 to 20mg 3x a day.

A doctor should can prescribe as much as he wants but you have to pay the meds on your own.

Is increasing the dosage up to swallowing a hand full of pills the right treatment?

This is off the top of my head. Any corrections would be appreciated.


iirc for OZ I saw 30 mg and I believe it was NSW. In the States, There is FDA approved limits, off-label limits, and then case by case by an experienced prescriber. For ADHD I believe it is FDA approved, 40mg, off-label max 60mg. I believe there are people on the forum prescribed over double these values, BUT NOT INITIALLY.
