Fisher-Wallace Ces Stimulator Device - Your Experiences

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about buying one after I have read some positive contributions as a potential treatment for anxiety disorders, depressions... What are your thoughts/opinions on it ? Has anyone tried it yet (mainly for anxiety, social phobia) ?

Thank you in advance for your replies !Fisher-Wallace CES Stimulator device - your experiences

I have had one since last Februrary. My worst problem is generalized anxiety disorder (I also have social phobia) and that is aggravated by my OCD and depression. The Fisher Wallace device has worked for me to noticeably improve my sleep quality, anxiety and depression though it is not a cure. It may be helping my OCD because anyone's OCD is worse under chronic stress. I had problems with nausea when I first started using it but that ended after the first few weeks. One side effect I have not been able to get past is a noticeable "blankness" and slight confusion for a few hours after a session but I am sure I am in a very small minority with this problem. The Fisher Wallace manufacturer claims the device increases serotonin, GABA, beta endorphins and alpha brain waves. I believe it is working for me and I have a friend ordering one. The device is very expensive and you probably will get little if any insurance reimbursement- I bought a refurbished one for $500 USD.

Hello cailinbron, I'm in America so I don't know about the availability of Seroquel (generic name quetiapene fumarate) in the U.K.. My psychiatrist prescribed 50mg Seroquel for my insomnia and it is working very well for that purpose. Seroquel is supposed to be helping my OCD and has mild antidepressant qualities. Seroquel is one of the early atypical antipsychotics, the ones associated with weight gain but it has been my experience knowing two people on relatively large doses that weight gain was not noticeable compared to Zyprexa which is notorious for it. The newer atypical antipsychotics like Abilify and Geodone are supposed to be much more "weight neutral" but I don't know if they can help with insomnia. I hope you get things sorted out and good luck with your upcoming appointment. :smile:

I'm pretty sure you can get Seroquel in Ireland because it's created my AstraZeneca a british pharmaceutical company. I've been on 400mg of it since 2004 to help with the insomnia caused by Major Depressive Disorder. It also helps to stabilize my mood. [edit] The drug's efficacy is very high but is notorious for it's weight gain side effects. I've gained over 90 pounds using the drug and can't lose any weight despite exercising 5 days a week and dieting.
