If this sounds familiar, TMS is a revolutionary treatment that may be right for you.
WHAT IS TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION
TMS is a groundbreaking treatment for Depression that uses MRI technology to restore the limited neuronal activity of a depressed brain. It is FDA-approved, non-invasive, covered by insurance providers, and virtually free of side effects.
TMS is highly effective for patients with tough-to-treat depression. Over half of patients respond to TMS and more than one-third achieve remission. This is remarkable news for those who have tried multiple treatments without hope of getting better.
HOW LONG DOES
TMS is a long-lasting treatment for depression. Over two-thirds of patients retain their response one year after completing a cycle of TMS. And even for those patients who relapse, the great news is that over 80% of patients respond to a second round of TMS.
HOW IS TMS
Over 40% of patients with depression do not achieve remission from antidepressants. Moreover, medications can often produce unwanted side effects, such as fatigue, drowsiness, weight gain, nausea, and sexual problems, to name a few.
WHAT ARE THE
TMS is virtually free of side effects because it treats depression in the exact location where it occurs, as opposed to circling the body like medications. Some patients may feel a headache or scalp sensitivity in the treatment location of TMS, which generally goes away within a few days.
