It seems that every decade or so the literature rediscovers that ADHD into adulthood exists.
Most psychiatrists are not very familiar with ADHD. Some might be freaked out by the idea of prescribing a Schedule II medication that they are not all that familiar with.
You might want to consider trying to get an appointment with someone who has been trained in child psychiatry. They would be familiar with the diagnosis and with the medication.
