Improving Veteran Mental Health
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator®Retired US Marine Logan Shield and retired US Army General Stephen Xenakis, MD, discuss using the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® for the treatment of mood and sleep disorders. The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and depression. During each 20 minute treatment session (once or twice a day), the device stimulates the brain to produce serotonin while lowering cortisol and dampening the default mode network. Patients typically experience symptom reduction within the first 2-4 weeks of daily use. Patients should not reduce or cease taking antidepressant medication without first speaking to their doctor.
