I tried it for three weeks and had zero improvement in my depression, insomnia and fibromyalgia. I returned it six weeks ago and I still don’t have my money back. I cannot recommend the stimulator nor the business.

Sorry to hear that and I really appreciate your reply!

Hi @robsev. I moved your discussion and combined it with your previous discussion. I did this so the discussion would be moved to the top of the Mental Health group again and so that all of the messages about the Fisher Wallace Stimulator would be in one place.

I’m bringing @zjandre @ladyjane85 @bekie @marieh @elltd and @Restless67 into this discussion because they might know more information about this stimulator.

@robsev. Have you consider to have one?

Never used it. But just ordered one.
I will keep you updated .

I’ve been using the Fisher Wallace device for 4 months for bipolar depression after being prescribed it by my psychiatrist and it is definitely helping. I use it on level 4 for 20 minutes twice a day which is a little more electrical output than the standard level 2. There are a lot of reviews of the product on the site if you are interested in seeing different kinds of patients.

I ordered a device three years ago to treat chronic insomnia and it’s been great for me. I was addicted to sleeping medication and am now drug free. I use the device four or five times a week. My sleep is much improved and I’m dreaming again, which I find restorative. This is a terrific product and I’d recommend it highly to anyone suffering from the symptoms the device treats. The company staff is very helpful as well if you have questions.

Thanks, great to know!

I talked with my psychiatrist about it and he said his reading of literature about it led him to believe that the majority were not helped but that a minority were. A lot of money to spend on something that may not work. It is ultimately the choice of the person after reviewing all the facts about the efficacy of this device.

Thanks so much! I see that they offer a money back guarantee if it does not work.

It took them 8 weeks to get my money back to me. It’s the same as floating them a loan for $700 interest free for 2 months.

Hello, @izze987 – Apologies for the delayed response. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

I'm wondering if you'd share more about what sleep disorder you were diagnosed with?
