week 1 on vns the first 3 days he was calm & falls asleep at night, after 3 days hyperactivity came back. We used 10 volts for 5 minutes. Can we increase volt 15 or 20?

Higher levels of voltage or amperage of transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation do not increase the effectiveness of the therapy; they will only increase discomfort in the user. The critical parameter is the frequency (Hz) and, in some cases, the bandwidth (uS).
