dexedrine and increase in dosage

i was finally put on dexedrine spanules last month for my ADD and my doctor started me off at a small dose of 15mg. i told him that my body has a very high tolerance to drugs. does anyone else have that problem? is it the way my metabolism processes the drug? i took 15mg and felt NOTHING....few weeks later he increased it to 30mg. still nothing.
it is the generic version by Barr...i can remember when i switched from prozac to the generic form, the generic didn't work half as good as the original. is it me or have others had this same problem?
i am going back to see my doc next week and would like to increase my dosage to 45mg. but hopefully 60mg. because i want my life back!!!! any responses or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Re: dexedrine and increase in dosage

You want your life BACK???? ADD is a lifelong thing, if you havent been dealing with this your whole life then it isn't ADD. I highly suggest you try other treatments before continuing to use and increase the dose of this medication. 60mg is WAY too high.

Try a different treatment or a different med.
