Extra VNS

Can anyone tell me where to buy a few extra VNS swipers. The black thingy that sets off your VNS. If possible I'd like to get a few extra for the family.

You should contact your Neurologist or Epileptologist for VNS Magnet replacements.

I called my neurologist and asked for some. He gave me a set like the ones that you probably got in the beginning - one you can clip on your pants and the other that has Velcro. If you ask he might give you more. Mine were free too.

Ask for the new style. They have a better band. it's like a watch band. Be careful with the clip on type, they don't stay clipped on.
