TMS Therapy is indicated for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in adult patients who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication. TMS is available upon the prescription by a licensed physician. It can be used in both inpatient and outpatient settings including physicians’ offices, clinics, and hospitals.
While TMS Therapy is considered to be a well-tolerated treatment with very few limitations, there are some patients it is not suitable for:
- Patients with a history of seizures
- Patients with any type of non-removable metal in their heads (with the exception of braces or dental fillings)
- Patients with any type of non-removable metal within twelve inches of the coil should not receive TMS Therapy
