Adderall dosage adjustment?

Diagnosed with ADD 6 months ago. Initially prescribed 20mg XR + 10mg IR (afternoon).

The afternoon dose is fine but the morning dose does not help anymore.

I have told my doctor but he says there is nothing he can do. Is this true?

How is the dose figured out? I'm 41 and 145 lbs. From what i've read the 20mg is half the amount of what is typically prescribed for an adult? Does it work based on weight and age?
