Best Alternative to Medication for Mental Health Treatment
Depression is the most common cause of disability among Americans ages 15 to 44. While there are numerous successful treatments for depression, common first-line approaches such as antidepressants and psychotherapy don’t help everyone. Of those with depression, about two-thirds don’t obtain adequate relief from the first antidepressant they try. After two months of treatment, at least some symptoms will remain, and the next medicine will be even less likely to help than the one before.
Frequently Asked Questions About TMS Therapy
Anyone who is suffering from depression, anxiety, or another mental health disorder may benefit from TMS therapy. Of course, as a relatively recent treatment modality, certain conditions are better researched than others when it comes to TMS. Depression, for instance, is the most well-studied condition – and there is a large body of research supporting TMS’ efficacy in depression treatment. The list of conditions TMS treats is ever-growing, though. It is important to recognize, too, that TMS has performance benefits even for people who are mentally healthy.
TMS is most frequently recommended to individuals who have tried to treat their condition with conventional methods and had little success. Medications and talk therapy do not always reduce the symptoms of depression or other mental health conditions. TMS therapy is extremely effective at mitigating the impact of treatment-resistant depression. Ultimately, however, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for TMS is to talk to a mental health clinician. At Lucid, our Los Angeles psychiatrists, clinicians, and staff members can evaluate you to assess your needs and develop an appropriate and effective treatment plan.
