The question about "signature" is not easily answered. Suffice it to say that by knowing what a drug does to brainwaves, which is pretty consistent, it can match it's effect to the problem presented to the database. So if stimulants raise "relative power" in certain parts of the brain, and the patient needs this, the database would suggest this as a possability based on their statistics of 10-20,000 medication trials and the fact that patients responded positively to that intervention. Atypicals haven't been entered due to when they started developing the database, the population they had access to and financial backing. They hope to include them when they can.

Regarding referrals, I can only suggest that you contact the company to see if they know of anyone in a particular area that is capable of providing the data to them.

While for obvious reasons I won't comment on particular cases nor practice medicine via a forum, stomach problems can be difficult but usually manageable with the H2 blockers or other GI meds. Of course some people are more sensitive than others.
