Frequently Asked Questions

TMS Therapy FAQ

Evidence-Based Depression Treatment Available in Texas

Are there side effects?

A major benefit of TMS therapy is that it does not cause any of the side-effects affiliated with most anti-depressants such as nausea, drowsiness, or sexual dysfunction.

Is there any reason why I SHOULDN’T receive TMS therapy?

Our clinical process has determined that all patients meet with a physicians for any clinical questions or concerns they have about being a candidate for TMS Therapy.

Antidepressants have made my depression worse. Will TMS therapy do the same?

There is no evidence that TMS therapy can worsen the symptoms of depression on a permanent basis.

Many medications come with a “black box warning” informing patients that there is a chance the medication will have an adverse effect, and may even prompt thoughts of suicide—especially in adolescents. TMS therapy has proven safe for adolescents and does not come with this risk.

What are the success rates of TMS therapy?

72% of patients that receive treatment through our program experience greater than 50% improvement with their depressive symptoms in just seven weeks.

What can I expect if I start TMS Therapy?

When you first start treatment your first appointment will be your longest one, where you undergo an evaluation and your physician will be working to map your brain and begin the treatment process. Most people find this extremely tolerable, often in 3-4 weeks you notice significant improvement in your mood, possibly your anxiety and sleep as you begin to feel better

TMS is an office based procedure. That means you don’t require any anesthesia or sedation. You can drive yourself to and from treatment, you sit in a comfortable chair, and you can listen to music and talk with the staff while you receive treatment. There are no known long term side effects and most short term side effects go away within one to two weeks of treatment.
