**This episode only exists because of the huge waitlist to get into see a psychiatrist and how difficult it is to get reviewed by any


health professional on ADHD medication. This isn't an expert point of view, it is a personal experience, everyone should seek medical advice or see their treating prescribing for their professional opinion when varying their medication**


**www.someone.health/ is a resource you can go to if you need speedy professional opinion**
