Can I use Flow if I have other medical conditions?

Modified on Mon, 8 Apr at 1:26 AM

Because of the way Flow works, it doesn’t interfere with medicines you may be taking and is generally safe to use if you have other medical conditions including diabetes, asthma, hypertension, and if you suffer with other mental health conditions in addition to depression.

If any of the following applies to you, talk with your doctor before using the headset:

  • You are thinking of changing something about your current depression treatment, for example changing your antidepressant dosage
  • You are unsure about your diagnosis
  • You are pregnant, think you might be, or become pregnant while using Flow
  • You currently have thoughts about suicide or harming yourself
  • You have been told there is a problem with your skull or if you have metal parts in or around the brain, like brain surgery clips, metal plates or screws in the skull, cochlear implants or brain pacemakers such as those used for Parkinson’s disease. It is fine to use the device if you have dentures.
  • You have epilepsy or have had seizures
  • You have a chronic skin condition affecting your forehead, such as psoriasis
  • You have bipolar disorder

If your doctor is not currently familiar with Flow, our team would be more than happy to answer any questions they may have. They can contact us at
