caffeine citrate is very costly plus for me still good old methylxanthine serves the purpose . however books n articles suggest less incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasi retinopathy of prematurity n cerebral palsy incidence with it . should b continued upto 34 weeks post gestation age . some articles even suggests upto 36 weeks . provided there no incidence of apnea for last 7 to 8 days .
