I am new here and I really need advice. I have recently been formally diagnosed with ADHD and have been put on medication for the second time in my life. I am concerned about being on this medication with my new career. Can anyone relate? Please help

What medication was prescribed?

@AnaLeigh Hi there…sorry it has taken me so long to reply…I was prescribed Adderall

I was prescribed Adderall

I don't see how that would affect your career. Unmanaged ADHD would probably be more of a concern than taking meds for it. What concerns you about taking Adderall?

its not the taking adderall so much as my new career. I just got certified as an addiction treatment counselor and hope that I don't have to change careers because of my mental illness

@bigheartedone I don’t see why you would. A lot of counselors have their own issues. In fact some of the best ones do.
