Here at Sydney TMS, we offer a safe alternative treatment for depression for those who have tried other medications. Our team understands that for some people, medications are not successful in reducing depression symptoms. The main reason being the side effects of medication are too severe to tolerate. At Sydney TMS we are pleased to be able to offer an alternative treatment for depression that is considered to be safer and have far fewer side effects than any medications currently available.
So, how effective is TMS?
Our patients’ results have mainly been positive, with two-thirds of the patients who have received TMS treatment for depression experiencing a significant clinical improvement. In fact, half of these patients have reached full remission. This is good news for us because we see so many treatment-resistant patients who have been suffering from depression for many years. Many of these patients have tried a multitude of medications without experiencing any change in their depression symptoms.
Through multiple studies with TMS on people who have failed other treatments, the response rate went up to 70% of patients that responded well to the treatment and remained well up to a year later. As more research is being conducted we will endeavour to bring you these updates as they come to light.
