Is TMS for me?

TMS Therapy is indicated for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from one prior antidepressant medication at or above the minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode.

In clinical trials of the NeuroStar TMS system, half of the patients had been treated with at least four medication treatment attempts, one of which was at an adequate dose and duration. NeuroStar TMS Therapy has not been studied in patients who have not received prior antidepressant treatment. Efficacy has not been established in patients who have failed to receive benefit from two or more prior antidepressant medications at minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode.

Note that TMS Therapy is contraindicated in patients with implanted metallic devices or non-removable metallic objects in or around the head. TMS Therapy should not be used in patients with implants controlled by physiological signals. This includes pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and vagus nerve stimulators (VNS).
