Hello I was just diagnosed 3 days ago with ADD

Patient : Hello. I was just diagnosed 3 days ago with ADD and was prescribed sixty 10 mg Adderall IR pills. I was told to try one 10 mg the first day at 8 a.m., in which I felt nothing. I told my doctor, and she said it was okay to try two 10 mg pills (20 mg) today. With this I felt a slight bit of concentration and relaxation, but quite miniscule, and it wore of by about 12:20. So my question is: Would it be safe to try 30 mg's tomorrow? How much should I take at noon? I don't know what wrong because most people online say 10 mg is enough. I am 15, 5'8", 150 lbs. My family has the gene of high tolerances on 'drugs'.
