Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Well, ECT is the most effective treatment for major depression , more so when the depression becomes treatment resistant , with no drug lasting long .. So, i would support the use of ECT in your case , and i am quite sure that ECT would get you out of depression completely..
Now , coming to your question , well there are no fixed number of rounds that are used in depressed patients , the number of ECT rounds vary from person to person and depend upon the improvement of the patient's condition..
So, i believe your doctor will decide on the number of ECT rounds that you need after seeing if your depression has remmitted completely , so just hang on there and comply with your doctor , as he is doing a fine job as he has taken you out of depression to some extent , and so you shall trust his judgment and follow his advise..
I hope this helps..
I wish you all the best...
