Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an effective method to treat resistant major depression. Major Depressive Disorder is traditionally treated with therapy and antidepressants, but those approaches are not effective for everyone. Some people are finding relief through TMS. Performed in an outpatient setting, TMS is a noninvasive treatment with minimal side effects that targets areas of the brain responsible for depression. If antidepressants haven’t worked for you in the past, TMS may be an option.
