Introduction rTMS is an innovative, safe, effective and well-tolerated, non-invasive treatment for patients with depression including those who have not benefitted from antidepressant medications, cannot tolerate antidepressant medications due to side-effects or wish to treat depression without medication. rTMS can help with… Depression, any severity including Severe Depression Treatment Resistant Depression that has not responded to antidepressant medication Intolerance to side effects of antidepressants (weight gain, tiredness, sexual dysfunction and sleep problems etc) Post natal depression, women who wish to breastfeed and avoid transmission of antidepressant medication Those who do not want to have ECT (electro-convulsive therapy)

ABOUT

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
rTMS for Depression an effective and safe non-invasive alternative to medication approved by FDA and NICE
Long lasting benefit Well tolerated with low profile of side effects
What are the advantages of rTMS? Highly effective in treating the symptoms of depression A long lasting benefit from the treatment Treatment is well tolerated by most people with minimal side effects No  anaesthesia and no sedation is required It does not lead to memory loss (there are ongoing studies that examine whether rTMS helps improve memory) Daily activities can be resumed immediately after each session. You can drive straight after treatment What are the side effects? rTMS is a safe procedure and there are safety guidelines that are followed by trained professionals. Headaches 4-10% Scalp discomfort at the site of stimulation 2-9%, Tingling, spasms or twitching of facial muscles 2% Discomfort from noise during treatment Other rare side effects include seizures (2 per 1,000 cases)

ADVANTAGES & SIDE EFFECTS

The treatment Treatment with rTMS usually comprises daily sessions (5 days a week) lasting about 40 minutes, typically for 2 to 6 weeks.  The treatment is administered by highly trainned staff with experience in mental health and rTMS. The response to treatment will be monitored by a Consultant Psychiatrist The treatment  The Coils The coil generates brief magnetic pulses, which pass easily and painlessly through the skull and into the brain. The pulses generated are of the same type and strength as those generated by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines. When these pulses are administered in rapid succession, it is referred to as “repetitive TMS “ or “rTMS”, which can produce longer lasting changes in brain activity. The electro-magnetic effect In rTMS, repetitive pulses of electromagnetic energy are delivered at various frequencies or stimulus intensities. Conventional rTMS is a repetition of individual pulses at a pre-set interval (train of pulses), whereas theta burst rTMS is a short bursts of pulses at a pre-set interval (train of bursts).  The rTMS Equipment TMS is a non-invasive method of brain stimulation that relies on electromagnetic induction using an insulated coil placed over the scalp, focused on an area of the brain thought to play a role in mood regulation.
