Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy involves small magnetic pulses delivered to certain areas of the brain involved in mood control and depression. TMS is more successful than any other drug used to treat depression today. It is as safe as an MRI. TMS is also safe for pregnant women or women wanting to get pregnant or who are breastfeeding.
TMS has a lower side effects profile than traditional drugs treating depression on the market today. Depression drugs are safe but can cause sleep disturbances, weight gain and/or sexual dysfunction.
