NeuroStar patient results & clinical data.

A safe and effective treatment for depression

Over 4.8 million NeuroStar Advanced TMS treatments have been performed in over 134,00 patients.

A real-world study reported an 83% response rate. This means that 83% of patients that completed their NeuroStar treatment cycle saw measurable improvement in their depression symptoms.**,12

The same real-world study reported a 62% remission rate. This means that 62% of patients that completed their NeuroStar treatment cycle likely wouldn’t be diagnosed with MDD if they were first being evaluated by their doctor.**,12

Whereas the largest prospective clinical trial of major depressive disorder ever conducted, the STAR*D study, showed that likelihood of remission decreases with every subsequent medication.6,7,17,18

Relief without the side effects of antidepressant medications

NeuroStar is not a drug, “shock” therapy, or surgery. And it doesn’t have any of the side effects associated with traditional antidepressants.1,9

There is no sedation, anesthesia, or recovery time and for most people the NeuroStar treatment is relaxing. The most common side effect is mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the treatment site that usually subsides within the first week of treatment.16,18
