Find out exactly how TMS works.

For patients who are resistant to treatment, TMS can be extremely beneficial. TMS candidates often had taken two or more antidepressants with little to no success. Not everyone is a candidate for TMS therapy, despite the fact that it offers hope for many individuals with depression or OCD. 

A few things that can prevent you from getting TMS therapy for depression or OCD are, financial circumstances and Medicare coverage, or previous health conditions that clash with the magnetic coils.

TMS therapy may be more expensive than antidepressants, patients are typically required to try at least two before being considered for TMS Therapy. If you don’t wish to take medicine, you can try TMS without taking antidepressants, but further consideration and discussion is required. 

As TMS Therapy makes use of strong magnets, certain individuals may have medical conditions that should be thoroughly evaluated before beginning TMS Treatment with Neuralia TMS, Perth.

These conditions are known as potential clashes, and the following are some of the most typical ones:

  • Metal implants above the neckline: In particular, aneurysm clips from neurosurgery would be a concern. 
  • Implanted devices: TMS magnets have the potential to interfere with physiologic sensing devices, pacemakers, vagus nerve stimulators, or other devices that utilise battery packs.
  • Seizure history: A seizure during TMS therapy is more likely to occur in someone who has had seizures in the past. In this case, it is beneficial to have a skilled medical professional assess the risk and, if necessary, make particular arrangements to reduce the risk of seizures.
