Hi All,

I'm looking for any experiences on neurofeedback (specifically direct neurofeedback but any experience stories will do). Someone suggested I try it for my anxiety and there happens to be a clinic for it right up the street from my house. The reviews are ridiculously good, and people claim their anxiety/depression has been cured from the very first session. However, I wouldn't be myself without over-researching it and learning about the potential side effects. The ones I came across were: nausea, dizziness, and a headache (that's my everyday so nothing new there) but then there were other scary ones (not sure if these were legitimate sources) saying that the neurofeedback made their anxiety the worst it ever was and they haven't been the same since.

I really want to try it and see if it helps in the last few weaning mg's of my Zoloft + a permanent anxiety cure, but am afraid it will do the exact opposite.

Thank you in advance!

Hey Blu!

I've considered it myself. I've had a card in my wallet for a couple months now for a guy that was recommended to me by my therapist...just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Same with accupuncture!

Hopefully soon though, and I'll let everyone know how it goes if I go through with it!

Definitely let me know if you try it! I've done acupuncture and it actually works really well, too, but I didn't do it for anxiety I did it for another health problem that it cured almost instantaneously. Friends who have tried it for depression/anxiety say it really helped them, though.

sounds like it falls under 'complimentary therapies'. new to me. i trust in evidence based treatments that have scientific credibility.

I agree with HTreturns, I'd rather have it as a complimentary treatment like CBT with an ongoing psychotherapy.
Thought, I've also read good things about it.
