You can take more than that IF your doctor prescribes it. Some people take up to 120 mg/day. So - let's say you're on 60 mg/day, you take one 40 mg capsule and one 20 mg capsule. And so forth.

I started at 40 mg a day in my first month, & for the past 3 months (currently on 7th & last month) i've been on 160 mg a day. i'm 5'5" 130 lb female, btw. so yeah, 40 mg is not really that much, at least in the situation i've been in.
