Everyone’s body is different, so it’s important that you talk to your doctor and your personal Treatment Specialist are RA Fischer Co. to establish a schedule that works for you. Most patients begin with 15-20 minute sessions 2-3x a week to start. However, in more severe cases, treating every day to start may be required.
Once you’ve achieved your desired level of dryness, you can reduce to the schedule that works best for you – once a week, once a month.
Begin at a low intensity – 1-3mA – and work your way up until you find a comfortable level. Most patients typically treat at 10-15mA for hands and 15-18mA for feet once they’ve reached their “maintence schedule.” Keep in mind that iontophoresis is like going to the gym – you have to keep at it!
Iontophoresis should never be painful, so treat at a power level that’s comfortable for you.
