How to Know if Alpha-Stim is Working for You

Alpha-Stim FAQs

If you use Alpha-Stim to treat pain or anxiety, you might notice relief immediately. But if you’re using your device to treat insomnia or depression*, the results may not be as instant. And everyone measures changes in mental health differently.

Our 30-day return policy allows you time to see if Alpha-Stim is right for you because everyone is different.

*FDA cleared for anxiety, insomnia, and pain only, with approval for depression outside of the United States.

Getting Relief with Alpha-Stim

Some people notice an improvement right away: “It worked from the first time I used it. It just relaxes my brain completely, reported user Genee Schock. Paul Schaum also experienced a sudden shift after Alpha-Stim treatment, saying “Without realizing it, my pain level went from ‘extreme’ to tolerable. My anger also went with the pain.”

In some cases, a loved one or significant other will notice a change before the patient does. “My partner was the one who noticed the sudden difference in my mental health and I was starting to sleep much better,” said Sarah Viengpraprok-Amin.

Mike Mansueto also observed a positive shift in his wife: “My wife has always struggled with anxiety and the first time she used the Alpha-Stim I saw something I’d never seen before. A complete calm. Love how it helps in just 20 minutes.”

One patient, who was using Alpha-Stim to treat his insomnia, was surprised to see his results reflected by his FitBit: the fitness tracker recorded improvements in sleep data before the patient himself had become aware of the change.

Here are some things that you may notice as your Alpha-Stim begins to work:

  • Longer sleep duration
  • Less irritability
  • Fewer anxiety attacks
  • Improved and/or balanced mood
  • More frequent laughter


Adverse effects are usually rare (occurring less than 1% of the time), mild, and self-limiting, including dizziness, skin irritation/electrode burns, and headaches.
