No, not strange...ADD/ADHD diagnosis is very popular these days as it sells more drugs and the stocks go up. It is often mis-diagnoised and abused as biological when there are no diagnoistic biological tests for it like there is for diabetes, and it has no real neurological symptoms like MS, Parkinsons' disease, etc, that can also be life-threatening.
I'm sure it exists as described but, I doubt amphetamines are good for anyone. And I doubt it's purly biological, since I know people who have overcome it without drugs, in particular my own brother-in-law and his son.
