Looks I've been having an opposite experience to a lot of people here.
Referred in 2021 for ADHD, diagnosed in June and put on a waiting list for titration.
I had a nervous 4 month wait but the staff and admin support were fantastic. Very caring, very helpful and very professional. Then I got transferred to titration and the experience has been horrible ever since.
I lost all my options to contact admin / other services and everything is run through the titration provider. He doesn't listen at all and I don't feel confident in his decisions. I've been in titration for 3 months and don't see myself getting out any time soon. Whenever I ask to go back to a medicine that worked, he's dismissive and makes me feel like I'm an inconvenience. I'm now on a medication that isn't working at all with some concerning side effects and it seems like he doesn't care. I tried to get in contact with the admin but nothing has come from it. I'm feeling pretty hopeless about my ADHD now.
So in summary, excellent right up until titration. I'm losing hope
