Antidepressants not working?

Try TMS.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a FDA-approved, safe, and non-drug treatment for those who have tried 2 or more antidepressants. Now it’s available at Psychiatric Associates in Iowa City, IA.

If you’ve tried multiple antidepressants and still can’t find relief, you may feel like you’re out of options. But there is hope!

TMS targets depression at the source using a mild magnetic field (like an MRI) to stimulate the part of the brain that’s under-stimulated in people with depression.

It’s non-invasive, comfortable, covered by most insurance, and has none of the side effects of traditional depression treatment!

83% of patients recover from depression and experience long-lasting relief, and you can, too, while spots are available.

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

TMS therapy is a non-drug treatment for major depression. Using magnetic pulses, like an MRI, it reignites dormant synapses in the brain and helps your brain function the way it was meant to.

It’s not a drug, “shock” therapy, or surgery. You’re totally awake and alert during treatment and many patients will read or watch TV during their 20-minute sessions.  It’s a safe and effective treatment for depression without the common side effects of medication.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

TMS Therapy for depression is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and state insurance plans, usually after medication options have proven ineffective in your major depression treatment.

TMS is not ECT (or electroconvulsive “shock” therapy). TMS uses magnetic waves similar in strength to an MRI machine. When you’re doing TMS, you’re fully awake and alert during treatment and after treatment, you can go about your day as normal. ECT, on the other hand, applies direct electrical current through the skull and into the brain rather than magnetic waves and must be done under anesthesia.

NeuroStar TMS has been systematically evaluated for its effects on memory. These clinical trials demonstrated that NeuroStar does not result in any adverse effects on memory or concentration.
