Thank you for waiting while I researched this for you.

Adderall XR use for 3 days can show up in a hair test as soon as a week after use and will remain in hair for at least 90 days.

Do you have any further questions? I am happy to help:)

Is that amount large enough to show up? If a person cut their hair after a period of time would it help?
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 1 year ago

Yes, that amount will show up. The test is sensitive to pick up even one time use.

The drug gets into the hair follicle. The follicle will pass the drug onto hair starting about a week after first use and continue for about 90 days. Your hair grows about 1.5 inches in 90 days, so only that portion of hair would be affected. So you could possibly cut your hair to beat the test. If you had to shave your head, they will likely use body hair instead.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
