Alternative depression treatment
Many patients are frustrated with the standard treatment options for depression. The mainstay treatments are medications (antidepressants) and psychotherapy (also known as counseling, therapy, talk therapy). While these are typically successful for many patients, some patients find little to no relief from these types of treatment. Many look to the alternative depression treatments such as supplements (like St. John’s wort), blue light therapy, and for treatment resistant depression TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation).
TMS can be a good alternative depression treatment because it is FDA-cleared, it has minimal side effects, is effective for depression, is drug-free, has no sexual side effects or weight gain typical of anti-depressants, no memory problems (like with ECT or electroconvulsive therapy). TMS treatment can be a good fit for you if you had not had successful results with other types of treatment for your depression.
Take a look at our website and the videos to see if TMS would be a good fit for you. The main drawback of TMS is having to come to the office for 30 treatments which some patients find burdensome. However, many patients when they put the time to invest in getting themselves better feel that it is well worth the time to come and get treatment.
