Hello, just wondering if anyone has tried the fisher wallace brain stimulator for bipolar 2 disorder?  I suffer mainly depression and anxiety and have been medication intolerant so am looking for other alternatives that might actually work.  Thanks guys

I do wish that I could report positive results regarding the Fisher Wallace device  ...  but I can't. 

There is an eclectic range of electrical devices promising great results for everything from gout to epilepsy, or bunions to Bipolar.

The Fisher Wallace Stimulator Is not very different from the much cheaper TENS machine : although claiming infinitely superior effectiveness of course.

There is just no significant or reliable evidence that any of the small Trans-cutaneous stimulators can treat any brain cootie effectively.  And various inventors from Alessandro Volta (in about 1800) on have been trying hard to get results.

 

The only research supported evidence for reliable, repeatable, electrical treatment of brain cooties is that for ECT.   Bipolar Disorder can be effectively treated by ECT but only your pdoc could assess whether it would be of benefit for you.   It was certainly a life changer for me.
