Many people who are considering using Alpha-Stim® to treat their depression, anxiety, insomnia, or pain are already treating their conditions with some other method such as medications, occupational or physical therapy, chiropractic care, or counseling, to name a few. You may be wondering how Alpha-Stim fits in to your current regimen. Here are some answers to questions or concerns that you may have.
*Alpha-Stim is FDA-cleared for anxiety, insomnia, and pain only, with approval for depression outside of the United States.
You may find that Alpha-Stim provides so much relief that you want to lower the current dose of your medications. It is essential that you do not make any changes to your dosage without consulting with your prescribing physician. He or she can work with you to devise an appropriate and safe plan for adjusting your current medication.
What if I don’t want to stop my medications – is it safe to use them with Alpha-Stim?
You do not have to stop taking your medications if you do not want to. Alpha-Stim is a drug-free medical device, and is safe to use with your current prescription meds without risk of adverse reactions.
How does Alpha-Stim affect my therapy/hypnosis/EMDR sessions?
Using Alpha-Stim before therapy, hypnosis, or EMDR may actually improve the efficacy of your session. Alpha-Stim lowers anxiety and promotes a sense of calm and relaxation, which will allow for maximal benefit from your other therapies. You may also use your Alpha-Stim during a therapy session to ease your anxiety.
If Alpha-Stim isn’t a drug, what is it and how does it work?
Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, non-invasive medical device. It uses Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) with a patented waveform technology to treat depression, anxiety, and insomnia through electrodes that clip onto your earlobes. For the treatment of acute, chronic, or post-traumatic pain, Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) is delivered directly to the site of your pain for non-invasive and immediate relief. Unlike drugs, Alpha-Stim has no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. It is available by prescription in the United States, and over the counter in other countries.
