Default transcranial magnetic stimulation

does anyone have any experience with TMS? My Pdoc would like to try this on me as I am on a lot of meds. The school of thought that he is using is this may help reduce the amount on meds I am on.


any thoughts on this or anyone with experience with this, id like to hear what you think

John

I have no experience with TMS. My former pdoc, who is now retired, had a lot of experience with ECT, and he felt it would be better for me to undergo TMS rather than ECT if it became an option. It never became an option.

I am currently considering Deep TMS as an option. My current SNRI is pooping out, so I need to do something. I have heard that deep TMS can be successful in 70% of patients. 50% have their depression go into remission!
With repetitive TMS, the numbers are not quite as good, it still works for many, so it might help.
Let us know how it goes if you get it. Iíll do the same.
