> Mitch, I'm a very fast metabolizer. Think the dose a little high?
Phil, I metabolize meds at a typical rate (I have had liver function and med level checks done recently). I think you just have a high tolerance level in general to meds and lack the "brittleness" that I have (due to bipolar). Adderall at 90mg does sound high, but if it is working OK, then you certainly can't argue with success. Have you had a cardiac stress-test done, or something that can check for mitral valve prolapse? Also, a full set of neuroendocrine function tests might be a good idea. You might ask your pdoc to refer you to a good internal medicine doc and a cardiologist to check some of that out.
keep us posted,
