I do not have to read that article as I can stop szs by swiping my chest under the skin on a device called a VNS. It does a very great job at getting them stopped in their tracks and leaves you with out an aura or a sz.

It shortens the sz (if missed with the magnet), reduces the severity, the frequency and the post-ictal time. It only takes about 20-25 minutes to come around.

to stop them I have a VERY HIGH powered magnet that will do it. it speeds up the amprige (sp) by 1/4 ofwhat it runs on normally. mine is set to go off every 5 minutes for 20 seconds at 2.25 amps and the magnet swipe is 2.50 amps.

Hi Nancy,

No, you don't Have to read the Article. But, should Anyway! You have the VNS. But, consider this! What if you witness another person seizing who doesn't have the VNS? These Tips could, also, be passed on to others' who may find the Info Useful! EDUCATION About All Aspects of Epilepsy, is what we are here for. As well as Support. HUGS!

Love Candi
