NeuroStar TMS Therapy has been proven highly safe and effective in the treatment of depression. TMS Therapy is free of the side effects typically experienced with antidepressant medications. The most common side effect associated with treatment is mild to moderate pain or discomfort at or near the treatment area.
You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair, awake and alert. A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.
NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head. Depending on your doctor’s recommendation, each treatment takes approximately 19-37 minutes.
You can resume normal activities immediately. Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions.
