Depression affects approximately 17.3 million Americans. While antidepressants work for many people, an estimated 6.2 million people in America have tried antidepressants without success.
TMS Advanced Therapy for Mental Health is a safe, proven depression treatment that can provide lasting relief from symptoms of depression.
TMS is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared therapy that uses brief magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain that controls mood. These impulses can have a lasting effect on the brain's neurotransmitter levels and help people with depression achieve long-term remission from symptoms of depression. Because TMS is not a drug, it does not cause the side effects often associated with antidepressants.
TMS is a non-drug, non-invasive treatment for depression that is performed in a doctor's office. You can lean back comfortably in a TMS chair (similar to a dentist's chair or spa chair) during treatment. During a treatment session, pinpoint magnetic impulses stimulate the mood-regulating areas in the brain that are underactive in people with depression. There is no anesthesia or sedation. You will be awake and alert during treatment and will be able to resume normal activities immediately after a treatment session.
If you suffer from depression but have not benefited from antidepressants or are not satisfied with their side effects, TMS Advanced Therapy may be for you. TMS can also be a good choice if you've tried switching drugs for depression but still haven't found relief from your symptoms. Take our easy quiz to see if TMS is right for you.
TMS treats depression without the side effects of medication and offers the potential for relief and hope for permanent remission from symptoms of depression. More than 4 million TMS treatments have been administered. If your loved one is unhappy with their current treatment, speak to a TMS doctor to see if there is any research into this transformative treatment.
TMS is a non-drug, non-invasive therapy that can help you relieve symptoms of depression over the long term. Many people's symptoms of depression improve significantly or go away after 4 to 6 weeks of treatment. TMS has been shown in clinical studies to produce an acute treatment response and remission *** for over a year.
TMS has been systematically studied for its effects on memory. These clinical studies have shown that TMS has no negative effects on memory or focus.
Some TMS patients experience mild to moderate pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site during the first week of treatment. This is usually temporary and clears up with subsequent treatments.
TMS is not an ECT. NeuroStar uses TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), which uses magnetic waves similar to the strength of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
TMS Advanced Therapy has insurance coverage nationwide, including Medicare and Tricare. Many PPO insurances will cover TMS provided you have failed medications.
Everyone is different. It is important that you are prepared for your first appointment with information about your history of depression treatment and antidepressant use. You and your doctor will discuss your current medications and then determine your best course of action.
TMS treatments are usually carried out within 4 to 6 weeks. After 2 to 3 weeks of treatment, you may notice an improvement in mood, have fewer days of depression, and want to interact with other people more often.
Your friends and family may notice your results before you!
