I have a Fisher Wallace FDA-approved medical device for cranial electrotherapy stimulation. Is it a safe & *possibly* effective treatment for anxiety?
Read what you can: Talk to anyone who's tried it. Since you already have it - the $ is not an issue - Ask about liability coverage for possible injury or other risk. Then, if all says "go". give it a try. But only after asking hard ?'s of the mfg. Confidence is important - so gain it if deserved. Good luck. Be careful.
