Safety and Prescribing

Caution statement for United States:

Federal Law (USA only) restricts Alpha-Stim® to sale by, or on the order of a licensed health care practitioner. Outside of the USA Alpha-Stim® is available world wide without a prescription but consultation with a qualified health care professional is recommended for difficult and unresponsive problems or when used in conjunction with pharmaceuticals or other therapeutic intervention.

Alpha-Stim® devices may be ordered by licensed healthcare/mental health practitioners, including physicians, dentists, podiatrists, nurse practitioners, chiropractors, naturopaths, psychologists, MCSWs, acupuncturists and physical therapists. Please check with your state’s licensing board when in doubt.

If your clinic does not dispense Alpha-Stim® devices directly to patients at this time, we would be happy to serve your clients. You may send us a medical order directly and we will follow up with the patient. The Rx and patient contact information can be faxed to us using our dedicated fax line (888-684-8414) or mailed to:

Alpha-Stim® M and Alpha-Stim® AID microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) and cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) technology is continuously being subjected to rigorous study and evaluation by the international medical community. Findings to date indicate that the Alpha-Stim® M is effective treatment with broad applications for a variety of syndromes involving pain, or for the short term relief of the symptoms of pain, and the Alpha-Stim® M and Alpha-Stim® AID (CES) are effective treatment with broad applications for the management of anxiety, depression, and/or insomnia, or for the short term relief of the symptoms of anxiety, depression and/or insomnia. In many cases it is the sole therapeutic method required. Effective results in pain management have been seen during and/or subsequent to stimulation over affected body parts, adjacent areas, and areas distant from those in pain. As with any therapeutic intervention, not all people will respond to the Alpha-Stim® M or Alpha-Stim® AID. The degree of efficacy will vary with the nature of the problem being treated, the overall health of the person, and with the method of treatment.
The Alpha-Stim® M or Alpha-Stim® AID may affect the operation of cardiac pacemakers (particularly demand type pacemakers). Do not stimulate directly on the eyes, or over the carotid sinus (on the neck beside the larynx).
For external use only. Do not allow children to use or handle these devices without adult supervision. Do not operate potentially dangerous machinery or vehicles during, and in some cases, for several hours after treatment with the Alpha-Stim® M or Alpha-Stim® AID (CES). Caution is advised in cases where other forms of analgesia (pain control) would not be used; such as to retain the beneficial aspects of pain for diagnosis or in cases where people may overuse pain-controlled areas. Safety of stimulation has not been established during pregnancy. There have been isolated reports of blood pressure being lowered by CES so care should be taken while using the Alpha-Stim® M or Alpha-Stim® AID with high blood pressure medication.
Adverse effects are usually mild and self-limiting. Adverse effects seen in approximately 4,541 patients in controlled, open, uncontrolled conditions, and by physician survey and reasonably associated with the use of CES are dizziness (6 cases, 0.13%), skin irritation/electrode burns (5 cases, 0.11%), and headaches (9 cases, 0.20%). Prolonged CES treatment at higher than necessary currents may cause dizziness or nausea that can last from hours to days. Treatment immediately prior to going to sleep may cause difficulty sleeping due to increased alertness. It is recommended that CES be used at least 3 hours before going to sleep. Paradoxical reactions such as hyperexcited states, increased anxiety, and sleep disturbances may occur, but are rare.
The Alpha-Stim® M and Alpha-Stim® AID are class IIa, Type B medical devices. They have been independently tested by outside agencies in order to provide assurance of conformity to applicable standards for medical equipment safety and electromagnetic compliance.
