transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

 
 

For people with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), long-term remission becomes less likely with each prescription medication treatment attempt. As antidepressant medication increases, so can side effects and the potential for treatment failure.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is an innovative, FDA-cleared therapy that can help people who struggle with MDD even after taking antidepressant medication. It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field, and is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).

Because NeuroStar is a non-drug treatment, people don’t experience side effects like those associated with antidepressant medications. The most common side effect is temporary pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site. These effects are temporary and do not occur for most people after the first week of treatment.

Precisely targeted NeuroStar Advanced Therapy makes long-term remission possible—which is why it’s the #1 choice of doctors.
