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

I have tried ET, the results were not what I'd expected (maybe i had high expectations) ET results don't last very long and when the "demon" comes back, it is worse (my own experience), its been very hard for me to find honest Dr's/Clinics
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

are you willing to try transcranial magnetic stimulation for depression?

I even tried a witch dr, I still can't believe I did that, really strange for me to do the "snake oil" but.... I did!

A healer, this person chanted and performed some kind of ritual on me back on December.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

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?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
