Hi Yes these are symptoms of ADHD in adults. However, I'm not sure which website did you refer to as hot temper and unstable relationships are not prime symptoms of it. You should refer to medscape for authentic medical information. And I would like to add an assurance that ADHD in adults can also be treated via medications and counseling. Medications are prescribed based on the severity of the symptoms.
