Proper dosage of Concerta for my 11 yr old daughter

My concern is that my 11 year old daughter (twin) has been diagnosed with mild ADHD.  It took awhile to get the proper diagnosis because we went through a divorce and they were stating she has Post Tramautic Stress Syndrom.  However her Dr. started her right off the bat with 36 ml of Concerta.  She could hardly move, did not want to play her sports and was very tired.  I only kept her on them for 3 days and then went back to see him.  He is now going to start her on 27mg.  But I read from Concerta website that children should start with 18.  However she weighs about 105 and is 5 "2".  That pharmacy says based on her weight 18mg will not do anything for her.  I am trusting the Dr. but reading something different.  Confused Mom
