In brief: ADHD is inborn
Adhd may occur with head trauma, but otherwise it may have been evident will still inside the womb.
Stimulants, alca, meditation, massage---all may help.

In brief: Diagnosis
If you suspect you have adhd, you should consult your doctor. This is a neurobiologic disorder that cannot be diagnosed by a layperson or teacher. The decision on whether medication is necessary or not is based on a thorough evaluation by a well trained doctor for each individual patient.
And, yes, adults can have add persist from childhood.

In brief: Not necessarily
It is important to find the real cause of your symptoms rather than just covering symptoms with drugs.
Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is just amphetamines and addictive. There could be a learning problem involved or nutritional deficiencies or allergies or diet could be causing your problems.
