Do you suffer from depression, PTSD, or anxiety? TMS treatments are a technological breakthrough for patients who haven’t responded to antidepressants or other treatments. Patients no longer have to rely solely on medications and drugs with harmful side effects for treatment. Keep this helpful information about TMS therapy in mind if you’ve been living with depression in Bellevue.
What are TMS treatments?
TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. TMS treatments utilize the same magnetic pulses used in MRIs to target specific areas of the brain. Using this technology, technicians can activate and raise the levels of mood regulating neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Two out of three TMS patients reported remission, or a reduction in depression symptoms, after completion of TMS Therapy during FDA clinical trials. The American Psychiatric Association has even recognized TMS therapy as an effective treatment for depression.
What can I expect from TMS therapy?
TMS therapy is non-invasive, which means that it doesn’t require anesthesia or sedation, and the patient is awake throughout the treatment. TMS treatment is also non-systemic, meaning that it does not circulate through the blood stream. Because of this, side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and tiredness, which are typically associated with antidepressant medications, are not present with TMS treatments.
