lol no pharmacy had it in supply when Bella was written for it at age 3. We went with quilavent instead. It was night and day in her ability to process and function. It might take awhile to get to the best dose. Don't get discouraged. You'll see immediate behavior shifts on any dose but you will go up until the shifts are steady. Also, be prepared for rebound. This may require a second dose in the evening or a counteractive dose, like tenex.
