Thank you! Our pediatrician gave me the indication that a booster was not an option for us. He may have been concerned with his low weight, he is 49 inches and 58lbs now, so hopefully that will be an option for us. he gained since we last saw him.

can they do a booster of methylphenidate? and stay on the same drug. He seems to have done better at school on the 27 mg rather then the 36mg. the 36 lasts longer, but does not help him any more and is actually worse during school.

I’m going to request a 27 mg and a booster for the afternoon, crossing fingers he will do something of that sort.
