I just heard of this device. One part of in goes in the ear then a cord runs down to the unit.
Sounds interesting. I have an appointment with my neurologist. I will have to ask him about. Not for myself now because I had a VNS/Battery replacement less than a year ago. I'm interested however.

I contacted them and got this reply: "Unfortunately, we cannot ship to USA at this time. Our devices are available for purchase in Europe and selected other countries. We are working on regulatory approvals for the United States and Canada, and plan to be able to distribute in these markets very soon." It kind of seems like people don't even need prescriptions for it.

I think they are recommending it depression rather than epilepsy. Probably there would be liability issues (and a higher threshold for proof of efficacy) if they did..
