Cost Containment vs. Drugs

These graphs illustrate how Alpha-Stim cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is more cost-effective and efficacious than antidepressant medications.

Alpha-Stim is More Cost-Effective

Alpha-Stim can save thousands of dollars per patient over medication. A person being treated with Prozac may cost $1,644 annually. Treating the same condition with Alpha-Stim CES for one year would save over $1,100. During Alpha-Stim’s five year warranty period, it could save you $7,100.

Alpha-Stim® is Proven More Efficacious

With 55 completed studies, and many more underway, there is more research supporting Alpha-Stim technology than there is for most drugs. The US government has funded two major Alpha-Stim studies: one is a NCI/NIH study for breast cancer and the other is a VA study for veterans with spinal cord injuries.
