Is TMS Therapy a Good Depression Treatment for You?

How can you tell if you are a strong candidate for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS therapy)? Many individuals have a very positive response, and they only suffer from few side effects. Most people are good candidates. Being able to tolerate something does not mean that it is appropriate, and so the FDA has cleared TMS therapy for specific purposes. If you are interested in this depression treatment, you must first find out if you are the right candidate. Reach out now if you need the best depression therapy Philadelphia has to offer.

Depression Therapy PhiladelphiaTMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) therapy is most commonly known as a treatment for depression. We proudly offer treatments for OCD in Philadelphia.

There are three main conditions individuals must meet to be an ideal patient.

  • A doctor has diagnosed you with major depressive disorder (MDD). The FDA has only cleared the therapy for individuals that have been diagnosed with MDD. If you suffer from seasonal affective disorder, TMS is not ideal for you
  • You must have tried traditional methods of fighting depression. Those that have failed to improve from antidepressant medication and therapy are good candidates for transcranial magnetic stimulation. For some, the pills help and hurt at the same time. The drug might make the mind feel better, but it can also lead to intolerable side effects. If medication does not work for your depression, TMS therapy could be your answer for a happier tomorrow.
  • Age is also a factor for treatment. All patients must be at least eighteen years of age or older.
