Google-Fu gave me this:

Daytrana will show up as an amphetamine on a urinalysis. If you are prescribed this medication it is not a problem though, but you may want to let them know before you take the urinalysis.

being daytrana is generally the same as ritalin, from what i read anyways, here's an excerpt from a ritalin testing page:
http://prescription-drug.addictionblog.org/how-long-does-ritalin-stay-in-your-system/ said:
Peak Levels And Half Life Of Ritalin
The peak levels and half life of Ritalin depend on the formulation. But with the immediate release version of Ritalin, methylphenidate reaches peak levels in the blood in about 2 hours. And methylphenidate from Ritalin tablets is eliminated from plasma with an average half-life of about 3.5 hours. As a comparison, in children the average half-life of methylphenidate is about 2.5 hours, with a range of about 1.5 – 5.0 hours.

Ritalin Drug Testing: How Long Does Ritalin Stay In The Body?
Because of how quickly Ritalin is metabolized, it doesn’t stay in the body for very long. Even the extended and sustained release formulas should clear a person’s system within a few days of being taken. Ritalin can still be tested for and detected in the system using a variety of methods, including blood, urine and hair sample drug tests.

How Long Does Ritalin Stay In Blood?
Because of its relatively short half life, Ritalin does not stay in the blood more than a day. After 24 hours, a urine test might be more accurate.

How Long Does Ritalin Stay In Hair?
Ritalin can be detected in hair for at least 90 days. However, the detection window for hair samples depends on the length of someone’s hair and the amount of the drug they’ve taken. Heavy or extended use will be easier to detect in hair screens for Ritalin than occasional use.

How Long Does Ritalin Stay In Urine?
Ritalin can be detected in urine for 1-2 days after dosing. Ritalin will be detectable slightly longer if you’ve taken the sustained or extended release version of the drug, simply because not all of the medication is released with the initial dose. Sometimes Ritalin methylphenidate metabolites can linger in the body longer depending on factors like weight or body mass.
i can't speak to the half life of daytrana though

Thanks guys. Long story short, I didn't want to go through the entire process of getting prescribed Adderall so I tried to just buy 1 to try. When I wasn't able to my friend got me a Daytrana patch. It honestly made me go crazy, so I'm happy I tried it before I got prescribed anything. Then I found out adderall is different, so I got my doctor to prescribe me it today. It's not easy. Anyway, I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it's not like Daytrana. He also took blood, which leads to my question here.
