> This all sounds really great and really promising and I commend you for not only using and helping develop this method but TELLING us about it. My question is as follows. After your post I read up a bit about this method and i would like to know how long you have to be off medication prior to taking the test? What if the drugs you are on are working partly but not in a lasting of complete way, it seems that going off at that moment would be sort of a gamble? Also I found that interesting what you said about maoi doing something similar to what a stimulant does considering that i take a stimulant Adderall, which has been the most helpful drug, along with zyprexa, for my depression. Perhaps an maoi would help my very extreme cognitive symptoms and anhedonia? Are there any other drugs that are not maoi that seem to do something similar in the brain as stimulants? If I could get away with not having to take an maoi, that would be ideal. Anyway, thanks again


A type I test must be done with a clean or naive brain. The person must be off their meds for 5 half lifes. If after using the suggestions the person isn't where they need to be, a type II can be done on the medications for comparison purposes to see if dosing is right or if this regieme is not moving the EEG, so alternatives are recommended. This means some people who can't go off meds would be precluded from using the rEEG.
