Severe depression is a serious illness that affects approximately 14 million Americans.1 While medications may help manage symptoms of depression, many patients are not satisfied with the results they get from standard drug therapy. Now there is NeuroStar TMS Therapy®, a proven, non-drug treatment for severe depression that is bringing new hope to patients every day.
NeuroStar TMS Therapy is FDA-cleared for patients with depression who have not benefitted from an antidepressant medication. This novel treatment approach to achieving remission works through transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), in which highly focused magnetic pulses stimulate the areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with severe depression. NeuroStar TMS Therapy is a safe, effective therapy that can be conducted right in the doctor’s office.
Because it is not a drug, NeuroStar TMS Therapy is free from the side effects that patients often experience when they take antidepressant medications.2,3
