      I've come across this trial for tDCS, and the results look promising. I'll admit I don't have a ton of knowledge about tDCS, but this trial found statistically significant results in lowered THI score, as well as distress and loudness VAS. It also included a placebo group and the results of the active treatment seem to have some lingering effect.

      One neat thing is that the device they used is already available. Looks like you can get one for $500.

      Do you have any experience using an Oasis Pro, or do you know anyone who has used one? I think it would be good for sleep and anxiety instead of pharmaceuticals.

      I know nothing about it. I just googled the device mentioned in the study and noticed it could be bought.
