> I remember you saying that you had just had the VNS implant, how long have you had it for now? Why does it take many months to crank up the voltage and at what point will they stop adjusting the voltage for you, do you know?
I had the implant in October 2008. They increase the amperage every 6-8 weeks by 0.25, and I believe that they're looking at something around 2.00.
I'm pretty sure that VNS alone wouldn't do it for me. But VNS in combination with Parnate and Cytomel has been a positive experience.
