How professionals with ADHD make their jobs (and life) work for them

Cat Jones didn’t realize she had attention-deficit, hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) until around 2012 while working at an insurance company, where she says her production levels for processing claims were “unacceptably low.” Her doctor suggested she try Adderall, one of the most common medications prescribed to treat ADHD.

“Once I tried it, it just kind of changed everything,” Jones, 30, of Lawrence, Kansas, told MarketWatch.

During a subsequent job at a small grassroots nonprofit, where Jones oversaw financial matters, donor outreach and several other responsibilities, things took a turn for the worse. “This position required me to do so many tasks at once that the Adderall actually seemed to become a hindrance; I had other work, though, that required the kind of focus I needed Adderall for,” Jones said.
