NeuroStar TMS Therapy is a safe and effective non-drug treatment for depression. The therapy works through TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), in which precisely targeted magnetic pulses stimulate key areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with depression.
NeuroStar TMS Therapy has been proven safe and effective for treating depression.
Clinically proven in trials with 800 patients1-4
More than 10,000 patients treated5
Technology similar to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which has a track record of safety
NeuroStar TMS Therapy is free of the side effects that patients most often experience with antidepressant medications. The most common side effect with NeuroStar TMS Therapy is pain or discomfort at or near the treatment area.
Each NeuroStar TMS Therapy treatment takes about 37 minutes and is conducted in the doctor’s office, five days a week, for approximately four to six week.
NeuroStar patients are awake and alert during treatment and can go back to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
