Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. To simply answer your question, YES Concerta can be tested for in a hair sample. Usually the test will be able to pick up on Concerta use in the last 3 months. They will show up as methamphetamine. A further more specific test would have to be done to determine that it is Concerta which showed up rather than meth. This is a gc/ms test which is ordered when a test comes back as positive.

Who can do this testing and what specifically should be asked for?
You would need to ask for a hair drug test with specific gc/ms testing for Concerta. This would be done by your local lab or can be ordered by your doctor. The gc ms or gas chromatography and mass spectrometry test is the test which picks up on methylphenidate and their levels in the given sample.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
