Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Congrats on your pregnancy.
Concerta has Methylphenidate which comes under Category C of FDA pregnancy drugs.It is better avoided in pregnancy if possible.The benefits and damage to the pregnancy caused by this drug should be considered before taking this drug.
You should see your doctor and request if there is a need for change of drug based on your symptoms and severity.

Take care
