TMS therapy offers an effective,
non-invasive, FDA-cleared alternative to
traditional medications.

Clinical studies have shown that one in two patients treated with TMS had a 50% reduction in their symptoms, and after six weeks of treatment, one-third (33%) of patients had no symptoms of their depression or were in “remission”. While there has not been a head-to-head trial that compares TMS to antidepressants, a landmark study (called STAR*D) explored the efficacy of medication to treat patients suffering from MDD and less than 15% achieved “remission”.

It is also important to note that TMS treatment may not eliminate the need to continue taking antidepressant medication, but it could reduce the amount of medication needed by the patient and, thereby, minimize the side effects associated with them.
