Can You Keep Taking Medication While Doing Neurofeedback?
Starting Neurofeedback does not mean that you must stop taking your prescribed meds. At SYMMETRY Neuro-Pathway Training we know medication helps support brain function while the brain is learning what it needs to adjust. As you progress through training your brain will start to self regulate. When this happens your meds may start to cause uncomfortable side effects. Working closely with your prescriber plays a key role in your success with neurofeedback. Your doctor can lower the dose of your prescribed medications to help decrease the side effects of the medication.
When Should I Reduce My Medicine Intake?
Neurofeedback creates neurotransmitters that help your brain regulate properly. This is what alleviates your unwanted symptoms. Your brain is still learning how to regulate even when you’re on medication. Don’t worry, you won’t have to figure out how to do this alone. Communication with your provider to determine when and how to gradually reduce your prescribed medication will help make your experience with neurofeedback positive. Our clients find talking with their doctor about every 10 sessions is an effective way to find the dosage that works best for you.
We want this process to be as simple and peaceful as possible. That is why we want you to be able to continue taking your medication throughout this life changing process.
What is Neurofeedback?
SYMMETRY Neuro-Pathway Training provides a simple and painless process that uses positive reinforcement to train brain waves to operate more efficiently. All you have to do to start is schedule a free 30 minute consultation and learn more about how each session will benefit you.
The process is simple. A brain map is completed to analyze brain waves to create a plan designed specifically for your brain. SYMMETRY’s Case Management Team creates a specific plan and uses Neuro-PT (aka Neurofeedback) to help teach your brain to work more efficiently. The brain has a natural desirable pattern that it wants to meet. Sometimes this can become dysregulated and needs to be retaught how to work better.
How do I Get Started?
It’s easy to get started. Schedule a free consultation, and we’ll walk you through how to get a brain map and then begin your neurofeedback sessions.
