What should someone do when they can’t get well?
When there’s no relief from the crippling burden of depression…
When therapy and antidepressants fall short….
What options does someone with treatment-resistant depression have left?
The phrase “treatment-resistant” sounds so final. But, thanks to advances in modern-day treatments, it doesn’t have to be! Generally speaking, treatment-resistant depression (TRD) means that conventional treatments don’t work to lift the dark and heavy veil of severe depression. It’s a term used to describe someone who can find relief from therapy, multiple antidepressants, or a combination of both. Being diagnosed with TRD can leave you feeling hopeless and discouraged, but TMS Therapy offers new hope!
TMS Therapy Can Provide Relief for TRD
TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that’s helping patients get well in the Huntsville/Madison area. We’ve been treating patients since 2011 with great success and we’re the most experienced TMS provider in the area! We’ve collaborated with local physicians and therapists to provide over 12,000 treatments to patients.
Our real-life clinical results show that TMS is effective in over 60% of patients which means it is much more effective than antidepressant medications. The best part is patients may begin to notice changes in mood within 2 to 4 weeks. Continued
stimulation creates new neural pathways and brain connections over time that lead to changes in energy, motivation and mood. All of this positive change occurs without the side effects of antidepressant medication.
A Non-Invasive Solution
Aside from providing significant relief of symptoms, TMS Therapy is a preferred treatment option for our patients for several reasons. Unlike ECT ( electroconvulsive therapy) TMS does not require sedation or IV. TMS is FDA cleared after the failure of one antidepressant for the treatment of depression.
