… ALL pharmaceuticals available and trialed failed to provide therapeutic value to manage severe depression. With no available treatment remaining in the VA’s grasp, TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), was authorized outside the VA System… After a series of treatments (not many) trust me, you might even fall asleep during the process. It’s just THAT easy! For me…initial notice of change after 3rd treatment. Definitive notice of change (mood, level of depression, anxiety, drive, focus, etc.) after 4th week of treatment. Completion of 6 week treatment protocol…no signs of depression, anxiety, mania, mood change, etc. Took the MMPI-2 diagnostic exam prior to TMS and immediately after…comparative study results: severe, debilitating, depression, mania, mood fluctuation PRIOR to TMS commencement. 0% evidence of depression, mania, mood fluctuation AFTER TMS protocol. And here it comes folks…withdrew completely from medications AUGUST 10, 2018 while in treatment! There is hope…explore the TMS option available to you.
