I couldn't find many informative or recent posts on this topic so wanted to ask myself. Anyone tried it? How did you fare on it?

Thanks, Pete

no one? I'm really surprised. It's quite effective for TRD. Apparently responding well to ECT is a good indicator. Shame I didn't respond at all to ECT then... -_-

I know a lady who goes to my pdoc's office who has VNS for seizures. It has almost completely ameliorated her seizures (which are very refractory), but when the VNS kicks in, she sometimes gets coughing spasms to the point of emesis, and it makes her voice kinda hoarse.

I don't know how well it works for her psychiatric issues (if she has any) though. While it works fantastically for her, it does have complications.

That's all I really know about it.

Thanks @mikl_pls. I'd be cool with puking now and then if it meant 30% less suffering.
