Yes, my 13 yr. old son has been taking Concerta since he was 11. We were resistant to medication for his adhd for a long time and tried several "natural" approaches. None of them helped very much. The Concerta works pretty well for him. He is way more orgainzed and focused with his schoolwork. The only negative is that if he doesn't take it early in the day he has trouble falling asleep at night.
