Here is a previous similar question with answers FYI - you can also order them through some medical supply stores, and as special order from most plumbing supply stores.

Note also there are four ways to achieve this (some easier to do as retrofit) -

1) buy a "tall" toilet, as you are talking about

2) install a regular toilet ona "raised base" (which should be from manufacturer for proper fit) which mounts to the toilet flange like a normal toilet, then a normal toilet mounts on top of that

3) build a raised floor section base (aka a "throne pedestal") under the toilet for it to sit on - though of course the drain piping hase to be extended in that case to get the proper mounting flange height, and the raised base has to be integrated with the flooring - easy with tile/stone, less so with sheet or laminate flooring.

4) use normal toilet with a "booster seat" mounted on top of the toilet rim. Note this is legal for residential use in a person's home whoi selects that option, generally NOT considered ADA compliant where the bathroom is supposed to be ADA compliant at time of sale or occupancy like with rental units or public buildings.
