I have had this device for a few years and it really helps boost the effects of my antidepressant medications. I can tell a big difference immediately. I highly recommend this product.
I was diagnosed with anxiety and clinical depression in my 20s and was medicated for many years with Prozac. It worked, but I gained weight and didn't like some of the other side effects. I chose to go off of medicine in my late 30s and did fairly well but still suffered from anxiety and occasional depression. I decided to try the Fisher Wallace Stimulator this last fall to ease my increasing anxiety, which was starting to lead me into depression. I used it twice a day for 20 minutes each. I noticed a difference three days later- my anxiety started to ease, and within a week, I noticed a considerable decline in anxiety and the depression had been averted. I noticed that I started dreaming more vividly, just like I had dreamed while on Prozac, so I knew that it was working like the Prozac only I am not having to deal with any side effects. I've been telling everyone I know who suffers from anxiety to give it a try-it's really helped me, and I use it religiously now!
So much better than taking often useless, side effect riddled anti-depressants. It has reduced my general level of anxiety which frees me up for more productive thinking.
I have suffered from depression for many years and after trying several different antidepressants, I finally gave up on them. My sleep had become terrible. I would toss and turn for hours and wake several times during the night once I did fall asleep. I started taking Belsomra, which was very expensive. When I saw an ad for FW stimulator, I took it too my Dr and he said to try it and wrote me a prescription. I thought it was well worth the money if it works. I have been using it since last fall and my sleep has improved tremendously. I fall asleep easily and stay asleep. If I do wake I fall right back to sleep. I even dream, so must be getting better quality of sleep. I quit the sleep medication right after starting with the FW. My depression has also improved. I would definitely recommend this device. It is worth the money. It is less expensive than antidepressants or sleep medication!
I've suffered from depression for my entire life, and have tried every combination of talk and drug therapy known to medical science. I'm in my 60s and had all but decided that life was as good as it was going to get, and it wasn't all that good. The Fisher-Wallace device was a Hail Mary for me. Within three days, I noticed that most of my symptoms had disappeared. I'm not euphoric, just free from depression. I have slightly improved sleep, but no side effects to speak of. I am cautiously optimistic about continued use of the device, but as of now there is no reason to stop and everything to gain. I'd recommend this to anyone who is not getting the desired result from conventional therapies.
I have had difficulty sleeping forever but this difficulty developed into insomnia over the past three years. Medications worked, but left me feeling lethargic and drowsy the following day. I have been using the FW device for three months and it has enabled me to develop healthy sleep patterns, to get more sleep, and to be able to return to sleep if I have woken up at night. I am currently under tremendous pressure( an international move) and managing the stress well thanks to the sleep the device has enabled me to get. I highly recommend the device. Use it regularly and follow the directions.
I have been using the unit since the 20th of October, 2016 - Sleep has always been an effort, I am now naturally tired by 9 pm and asleep within 10 minutes of lying down. I sleep 7 to 8 hours and awaken feeling truly refreshed. I stress enough the gift this device has given my life. My years long battle with depression is gone. I sleep like a baby. Please do your self a favor and try this unit, I promise you, you will be amazed.
I have been suffering with insomnia for my whole life and have tried ambien, lunesta, melatonin and all the otc sleep aids and nothing helped. After using the Fisher wallace for 20 minutes twice daily I have finally been able to sleep again this product truly is a Miracle and I highly would recommend it to anyone with sleep issues of any kind. You dont realize how important sleep is! It affects every aspect of your life so dont put it off any longer drop the dangerous medications and buy the fisher wallace! I know it seems expensive at first but after you use it for a few months it pays for itself for sure.
I am a 52 year young bipolar man that believes in God and medication that suffered from bipolar disorder, anxiety and depression. This machine has allowed me to feel non suicidal. I am down to 2 lorazapam a day and one antidepressant pritiq a day. I paid full price for my machine but this machine has been worth giving up anything financially to feel this much better. God blessings and love to the creator of this machine and for you all allowing it to be at a reasonable price even tho I had to charge mine it is worth any amount to feel like a human again. To be able to get up and get dressed. To be able to go to stores. To not cry all the time. This is a miracle machine. Love Richard
I have suffered from depression for all of my adult life so when I saw an advertisement for this, I thought, what can it hurt? I really saw improvement going in to my second week. I caught myself dancing to some music I was hearing on the television!! My anti depressants did not seem to be working as they once did but I can tell a difference. It is a godsend.
