The goal of ADHD meds are NOT meant to make you euphoric. If the meds are causing euphoria and you are constantly achieving that state, your dose is too high. Chasing the euphoria will only lead you to health problems. No matter how hard you try to chase the euphoria, it will always diminish until you take more and more of the drug, which will eventually lead to most likely mental health side-effects (paranoia, withdraw, depression, psychosis, metacognition, sleep abnormalities, panic attacks) let alone physical effects (hypertension, high blood pressure, arrhythmias) . Over time, some may not become reversible.
ADHD meds are meant to put ADDers on par with other people who are not ADHD, not exceed them or be able to hyperfocus.
I don't think you will find much sympathy for you on this forum for chasing the euphoria of the meds.
You need to talk to your doctor.
