“My first episode of depression was back in 2002. I was treated with medication but most didn’t work. I went through a phase of ECT treatments which worked for a time but I did have a recurrence of the depression. My doctor finally convinced me to give Neurostar TMS Therapy a try. I decided I was willing to try it for the hope that it would improve my quality of life. I started going through the treatments 5 days a week and after about a month, I woke up one day and didn’t feel anxious or depressed and I began to think it was working. I had more energy and wanted to go out and see my friends. And it only got better from there. After the six weeks of treatment I was back to my old self. I am currently on medication and will continue with it but now I am completely without depression symptoms.”
“Since TMS… I know there is hope.”

“I first experienced depression in the early 1990’s – I have had multiple episodes for almost 20 years now. Depression has made me withdraw from my friends and family, focus less on my work and goals, and stop doing the things I enjoyed the most. I decided to try NeuroStar TMS Therapy because other treatments were not working well, the monthly expenses of constant drugs and their potential side effects. Treatments were easy, although a bit uncomfortable the first couple of times, but then became hardly noticeable. Each session got easier and I was off meds quickly. I noticed a change almost immediately. I was sleeping better, focus, deal with things, control my emotions, and was not as depressed. I didn’t have the “weighed down” feeling of depression. I am now focused and back to doing the things I love. I can handle my high stress job again and I am better able to cope with emotional situations at work. I am back to doing things with friends again.”
“I was severely depressed over a period of three years. I tried several antidepressants but nothing really seemed to work. I had a severe allergic reaction. My family was very poorly impacted by the whole problem of my depression. By the end of the TMS treatment, things were better than I could have imagined. After that six week, I was so excited that my life was starting to resume. It could actually get better and that I had more to look forward to.”
