Brainsway Deep TMS, was FDA-approved in 2013, and is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate the nerve cells in the brain that are responsible for depression, and is transforming the lives of patients who suffer from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). 33% of MDD patients are resistant to any medication and 52% fail to respond to first-line therapy.
Patients who have not seen improvement in their MDD symptoms using other treatments may finally find relief with Deep TMS. The treatment is safe with none of the negative side effects associated with antidepressant medications and other depression treatments. There is no nausea, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, sedation, chronic diarrhea, dry mouth, rash or memory impairment with TMS. There were no negative effects on memory and ability to concentrate, or need for anesthesia as there is with electroconvulsive therapy or ketamine.
Deep TMS offers significant improvement by giving patients more energy, positive thoughts, and a better outlook on life. While results are typically noticeable after three or four weeks of treatment, some patients have reported better moods right away.
