TMS for Depression
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a proven treatment for depression.
Studies have evaluated the role of TMS in the treatment of depression since the mid-1990s. These studies have clearly shown that TMS is more effective than a placebo type of stimulation, especially in patients who have not responded well to antidepressant medication treatment.
- By comparison, more than 40% of patients with depression do not respond to antidepressant medications.
- For the majority of depression patients, TMS therapy can provide relief within 6 weeks.
