How is TMS therapy different from depression medication?
TMS differs from traditional drug therapy because it uses MRI-strength magnetic pulses targeted only to specific regions of the brain that are known to be under-active in those diagnosed with major-depressive disorder or treatment-resistant depression. TMS activates and raises the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain – and can be used in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.
Does TMS therapy hurt?
No, TMS therapy is typically regarded as painless, although few patients have reported mild discomfort during treatment. Described as a tapping feeling.
