TMS is more effective than antidepressants by nearly 20% and doesn't cause any of the systemic side effects that come with medications.
Antidepressants are not for everyone
While antidepressant medications are traditionally the first line of treatment for someone with depression or other mental health conditions, too often they cause multiple undesired side effects. Side effects can include GI distress, constipation, dry mouth, headaches, foggy thoughts, cognitive problems, irritability, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, and much more.
TMS does not cause any of these systemic side effects and may be a better treatment option for you.
Why Patients are Choosing TMS Over Medications?
Psychopharmacology has traditionally been the only treatment used by most physicians to treat mental health conditions. Unfortunately, medications come with many undesired side effects, withdrawal, and some with a high risk of dependence.
TMS can be a safer, more tolerable treatment option for many patients. Clinical research proves that TMS is a more effective treatment and provides long-term relief, even remission for many people battling the debilitating symptoms of depression.
TMS treats a number of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In just a few weeks, greater than 70% of patients are able to regain their life back and can enjoy life once again.

Remission from Depression, Anxiety, & PTSD is Possible with TMS Therapy
TMS can be a life-changing, life-giving treatment for patients suffering from moderate to severe major depressive disorder (commonly referred to as treatment resistant depression).
TMS involves the use of a magnetic coil, placed on a specific area of the scalp, to deliver a train of magnetic impulses which stimulate under-active neurons. Over a short period of time, typically 20-36 treatment sessions, these neurons begin to 'awaken' and perform their job. While TMS is not a permanent cure for depression and other mental health conditions, nearly 70% of the patients treated can expect to receive a significant reduction in their depressive symptoms, and many patients achieve complete remission.
You deserve Happiness
Depression, left untreated, can have a significant impact on your mental and physical health. The Star* D Trial proved that the efficacy of antidepressant medications is only 27.5% with your first medication trial, and by your fourth medication your chance for remission drops to 6.9%.

Efficiency of Antidepressants
- 27.5% chance of remission with first medication
- 21.2% chance of remission with second medication
- 16.2% chance of remission with third medication
- Only a 6.9% chance of remission by the time you reach your fourth medication trial
TMS offers nearly a 70% chance of remission with your first treatment and can be completed in the same time frame it takes an antidepressant to reach its peak effectiveness.
