Hi, @ice – I believe members on Mayo Clinic Connect have had a variety of experiences with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). I'd like to invite @mrser52 @mandrake70 @mamacita @healthytoday @jakedduck1 @brightwings into this conversation for any input they may have related to ECT for a patient who is 65 and seems to have treatment-resistant depression.

Are you feeling more or less comfortable about this therapy with the reading you've done and input you've gotten from others thus far?

Thank you. So far the verdict is out. Not at all sure about ECT.
