FDA-Cleared Insomnia Treatment
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is cleared by the FDA to treat insomnia, as well as depression and anxiety. Used for 20 minutes before bedtime to treat insomnia, the device works by stimulating the brain to reduce anxiety by producing serotonin and melatonin while lowering cortisol. The majority of patients in published studies experienced insomnia reduction or remission within two-to-four weeks of daily use. The device may replace the use of sleep medication and does not cause the side effects of medication.
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® treats insomnia by stimulating the brain to produce serotonin and melatonin while reducing cortisol (the stress hormone) and calming the brain's Default Mode Network. The device is effective in treating the following types of insomnia:
- Chronic Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep three or more nights per week.
- Onset Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep at the beginning of the night.
- Comorbid Insomnia: Insomnia that occurs in conjunction with depression or anxiety.
- Maintenance Insomnia: Difficulty staying asleep through the night (waking up often or waking up too early).
- Acute Insomnia: Temporary difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep as the result of traveling or a life event.
Easy to Use
The device is extremely easy to use and the stimulation feels pleasant during the 20-minute treatment session, often causing the patient to feel immediately relaxed. To treat insomnia, patients use the device for 20 minutes before bedtime. If you do not suffer from insomnia and only use the device to treat depression or anxiety, the device will not make you drowsy.

Doctor & Patient Testimonials
I have had great success using the device to treat severe, chronic insomnia in patients who are resistant to pharmacotherapy. Also, patients who seek a drug-free alternative to treat insomnia have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to reduce or eliminate their dependence on prescription drugs. *
