Dr. Hoffman, you mention that rEEG cannot predict side effects. So it seems the methodology would be useful primarily to people who have not tried many meds or who have not got relief from the meds they did try

It seems to me that those who have tried a variety of meds, which applies to many people on this board, could end up spending a lot of money only to be recommended drugs they previously discontinued because of intolerable, or at least unacceptable, side effects.

Certainly for me, side effects, not effectiveness, have been the real issue. Several SSRIs helped me a lot with both depression and social phobia, but all had what I considered unacceptable side effects, and efforts to counteract the side effects proved futile. On the other hand, Wellbutrin has no side effects but unfortunately only helps a little with depression and not at all with social phobia.

In case,s like mine, I can't see that rEEG would be of much benefit. Is this correct, or is there something I'm not seeing? Thank you.
