VNS Therapy for Epilepsy

What results can I expect?

For those who benefit from VNS Therapy, it has been clinically proven to reduce the number and intensity of seizures and, in some cases, to completely eliminate seizures. Many people experience effective, long-lasting seizure control. Studies show that the positive effects of VNS Therapy typically do not wear off; in fact, they may improve over time. Studies show that, unlike a medication, the effects of VNS Therapy may take between a few months to 1 or 2 years to reach optimum levels. In addition, many patients using VNS Therapy have also reported improvements in mood, increased alertness, and enhanced memory. Also, physicians have confirmed that some patients have been able to reduce the quantity and/or doses of medication over time. Many patients using VNS Therapy no longer have to make as many visits to the hospital.
