TMS is a great option for patients who have not had any luck with anti-depressants.
You might be an ideal candidate for TMS if:
- You’ve tried medications for depression but they haven’t worked or you experienced intolerable side effects
- You're seeking noninvasive treatment - You’re looking for a solution but you don’t know where to turn to next
You’re not alone. Many patients who suffer from Major Depressive Disorder have stories just like yours. And many of them have turned to TMS Therapy to help reduce their symptoms.
