Adderall XR 60 mg Daily

I am taking 60 mg of Adderall XR daily in 2 capsules 30 mg each. I am still experiencing ADHD and psychiatrist is unwilling to go any higher with the dose for obvious reasons of concern with sleep, hypertension, irritability, anxiety, etc.

I am wondering if it would be helpful to stop taking Adderall XR in capsule form and try tablets, but mix the tablets with a different medicine like Straterra or Wellbutrin? I don't know if that is even safe or allowed by doctors/insurances to do.

I tried resistance exercise a few times and both of them helped my ability to achieve focus. However, this boost in concentration was short-lived.

The only other thing I can think of is to try CBD Oil, but it is too expensive and it requires that I order it to get it where I live. I am getting frustrated in that I feel trapped by my ADHD and am unable to do anything more to achieve relief.

Oftentimes I will meditate and practice yoga. Those help a bit with my anxiety, stress, and energy. I am still wanting to get more focus out of my waking hours, though.

It is difficult to address as I have felt trapped with my disorder for a very long time and am not responding well to medication at this point after such time of using the Adderall XR capsules.

Often I will see a psychotherapist and recently I've stopped seeing him since he didn't know much about ADHD or how to properly assess treating it/managing it. I hope to find someone who knows more about it that can further assist me in my journey.
