The Flow headset gives less severe and fewer side effects than medication, but offers similar results.


Common side effects:

Skin redness underneath, or near, the electrodes is common due to increased local blood flow. This is harmless and will subside 30-60 minutes after use
Some users experience skin irritation underneath the electrodes. In such cases, the headset should not be reapplied to irritated skin


Rare side effects:

Users who suffer from tinnitus have reported rare cases of intensified symptoms, such as noise or ringing in the ears
Should you experience sharp pain during stimulation, or an increase of depressive symptoms, discontinue the treatment immediately and consult a physician.

When can I expect to feel better?

77% of Flow users experience an improvement of their depression within 3 weeks with the Flow headset. Though this does differs among different people.

It is important to note that the best results have been seen by following the recommended treatment plan - using the headset 5 times a week for the first 2 weeks, and twice a week after that. Sporadic use of the headset has not been tested or proven effective.


Is Flow safe to use?

Yes. The Flow device was designed by experts and is based on tDCS techniques that have been used in clinics for over a decade to treat depression. The Flow device has undergone research that confirms it is a safe and effective treatment for depression.


How long do I need to use Flow for?

If this is your first time using the headset, we recommend completing at least 15 sessions according to the treatment plan (5 times per week for 3 weeks) before deciding if this treatment is right for you.

Usually at around session 15, users have begun to notice significant positive changes in their depressive symptoms. However, please note everyone is different and some may begin to feel changes earlier. The majority of users continue to feel larger reductions post-15 sessions. These changes have been observed in various tDCS studies.


What does it feel like?

Using the headset feels different for everyone. A number of factors will affect how you experience Flow, for example, sleep quality and skin sensitivity and therefore sensations may vary among sessions. It usually feels a little more intense during the first 3 minutes of a stimulation session.

Some people have reported not feeling anything while others have reported feeling an itchy, slightly tingling sensation; like a stinging or a mild burning sensation on the forehead.


Can I do something else while using Flow?

We recommend following the behavioural therapy courses in the app to further support the creation and maintenance of healthy habits that have been proven to help reduce depression.

If you don't want to do that, you don't have to. You can listen to music, watch TV, some users do puzzles or sudoku whilst stimulating.

It is important to note that the Flow headset should not be used while operating heavy machinery, near water, or while performing intense exercise.

The headset also requires continuous contact to the forehead.


When is the best time to use Flow?

A stimulation session takes 30 minutes and can be done whenever works best for you. Whether that be while you eat breakfast to start your day, while replying to emails at work, or even reading while winding down for bed. Flow is a wireless headset that can go wherever you go. Just remember to charge it before use.

Some users have reported feeling energized after stimulation and for those, it would be recommended to use Flow earlier in the day. Some users have reported feeling sleepy after stimulation and for those, it would be ideal to use Flow before going to bed.

Most users do not feel sleepy or energized after a stimulation so it does not matter when the stimulation takes place during the day.
