This is Dr. David
have you tried electroconvulsive therapy for chronic depression?
have you tried transcranial magnetic stimulation
TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven't
are you willing to try transcranial magnetic stimulation for depression?
I'm not sure what you mean.
that is not the same as transcranial magnetic stimulation.
there are also new types of second generation antipsychotic medications such as abilify, clorzapine, clozaril, geodon, Riosperdal, Seroquel when used with conventional antidepressants can make them more effective.
has your psychiatrist talked to you about these options?
