I completed Neurostar treatment in April of this year and life has been normal—fun, exciting! I engage with people socially. I engage with my daughter. I enjoy things that I lost. I don’t go to bed at 5 o’clock in the afternoon any more. I actually stay up…I’m back to my night owl personality where I’m up enjoying life wanting to extend my days rather than cut them short.
- Was not experiencing the full effects of depression medications.
- Look forward to the next day.
- Began looking forward to the things he didn’t care to do before.
After receiving the treatment, I looked forward to the next day. I looked forward to a lot of the things I really didn’t care to do anymore and it just shined a new light on my life.
About NeuroStar® TMS Treatment
NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
How TMS Treatment Works
TMS Therapy is a treatment that is performed in a psychiatrist’s office, under his or her supervision, using a medical device called the NeuroStar TMS Therapy system. NeuroStar TMS Therapy is:
- Non-invasive, meaning that it does not involve surgery. It does not require any anesthesia or sedation, as the patient remains awake and alert during the treatment.
- Non-systemic, meaning that it is not taken by mouth and does not circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body.
The typical initial treatment course consists of at least 5 treatments per week over a 6-9 week period, for an average of 30-36 total treatments. Each treatment session lasts approximately 19-40 minutes, depending on what the doctor determines is the correct protocol.
