Cost Containment Comparison Between Alpha-Stim® M and
the Leading Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression and Pain Medications
The Alpha-Stim® is a prescription medical device cleared by the FDA to treat anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain. Alpha-Stim® utilizes a microcurrent to deliver a unique proprietary waveform that interacts with bioelectricity allowing the body to recover. Alpha-Stim® has been on the market for over 30 years and has more research than any other therapeutic device.
While the long term cost effectiveness of using Alpha-Stim® in comparison to popular psychopharmceuticals is significant, the most impressive argument for choosing Alpha-Stim® is the lack of side-effects. In 144 human research studies including over 8,800 patients receiving active treatments, the most common side-effects reported was: myogenic headache (1:977, 0.10%) and skin irritation at the electrode site (1:1,465, 0.07%), both of which are mild and self-limiting.
The Alpha-Stim® AID, used to treat anxiety, insomnia and depression, has a retail price of $795 while the Alpha-Stim® M, which also includes the treatment of pain, retails for $1295.
Both models carry a 5 year warranty. In the cost comparison chart for Alpha-Stim® pricing we included:

Alpha-Stim® is an effective, non-toxic treatment option for anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain. Alpha-Stim® is clearly more cost effective and much safer than the leading pharmaceuticals proving once again, that there really is no comparison.
