Well looking at the bulletin board where people post comments at the product website I came across the following which would give me pause for contemplation:

" 10/12/99 1:53:46 PM
I had my VNS fitted on the 7th of September and activated on the 24th. I have had mild pain and itching since the operation however for 2 days now the pain has become unbearable. I can only describe it as a tearing pain. I also feel I'm am falling into depression and getting agressive with my husband. I have now got an appointment with my GP although he'll probably refer me back to the hospital and not want to get involved. I have an appointment with the hospital on Friday although that is to increment the VNS.
Has anyone had any similar experiences? Did it last? What did you or the doctors do about it? I would be very greatful if you could reply quickly."

Despite this there is a guy named Herb who posts in a depression thread, whose wife will be undergoing surgery for this device on November 15 if she is is accepted. He is going to be keeping that board posted on his wife's progress and I've requested that he consider doing the same for PB.

> Anyone know anything about negative effects? Risks? It sounds great, makes me want to sign up now. Can people go off meds with this zapgadget?
