ADHD is a chronic disorder. Therefore, if you have been diagnosed with ADHD in childhood, the diagnosis is still valid. More or less 30-40% of patients seems to "outgrow" the diagnosis - but it is more likely that they learn mechanisms to better deal with the symptoms. As the environmental demands change, symptoms may appear to "flare up". This being said, it is still important that you consult a psychiatrist to make sure there is not other reasons for your symptoms to be more prominent now - e.g. sleep deprivation, anxiety or depression. Your medication needs will also be different than it was in childhood.
