Supertherapeutic ADHD Doses

User Profile
I am prescribed 30 mg Adderall XR 3x/Day. It is feasible/safe to go higher if needed in someone like me who has very severe ADHD? I have some appetite loss and some mild sleep trouble, but it is not terrible. I would just be taking the higher doses 'as needed' and only for medicinal purposes alone.

Are doses that high a possibility for those who have reason(s) to find usefulness/help from them with supervision of a doctor approving it?
