TMS or ECT treatments: Did they work for you?
TMS and ECT treatments are very reputable and often used these days by top notch Psychiatrists. I’m wondering if anyone has had either one recently, and did you have it for depression, or another condition? How did they work for you?

Thanks so much, Colleen, for your nice reply. I’ll check out those links. I’ve been noticing more and more Psychiatrists listing both items under their modalities column. I’ve already had one consult with a local Psychiatrist, but plan to have 1-2 more to see which doctor I’m most comfortable with. I think TMS or ECT would be of great benefit for me, but I’ll see what these Psychiatrists say. I have had numerous therapists over 30 years, to not much avail.
