I will warn you about one thing that i've been experiencing, maybe others have as well? Chime in please if you have. But as my battery got lower on the device it stopped working as well. Once my battery hit below 15% my seizures started to get worse, which has been a real pain because they won't replace it until it hits about 10%. The company claims it will work perfectly until the end but I disagree, so does my neurologist.

I would talk to your doctor if you aren't feeling a difference when you use the magnet. You should notice a big difference when you use it, they may not have that magnet use set high enough or something.
I noticed my seizures were becoming more frequent and worse than before. When I went to my neuro I found out that the battery was dead. He checks my VNS at every appt, which are on average around 4 months apart, but it was set pretty high so the battery died faster

Every so often I will use the magnet when I'm not having a seizure, which is ok to do. If everything is ok with it I'll feel a tingle in my throat. If I don't feel that tingle then I know something might be wrong. This is how I found out my battery was dead.
