In brief: Evaluate

People with adhd rarely truly have memory loss, they may not attend and it may not be getting in.
Memory loss is a very subjective complaint and really the best way to really determine if you have memory loss is neuropsychological testing. According to studies people are really generally bad at judging their memory, however if there is a big change - see a physician and consider neuropsych tests.
