    The Americans with Disabilities Act ADA requires an employer with 15 or more employees to provide reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities, unless it would cause undue hardship. A reasonable accommodation is any change in the work environment or in the way a job is performed that enables a person with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities. You are required to request a reasonable accommodation from your employer and still must be able to perform the essential functions of your job.

If you have questions regarding reasonable accommodations for a change in medication under the ADA standards check with your HR department for additional information.
