If so, how did it work? I understand it is for relief of depression when one or more antidepressants have failed. I've been on over 20 psych medications over the years, and none really seemed to help. I've followed TMS all through the Clinical Trials and FDA approvals, and now my psychiatrist offers this therapy. Also, does anyone have an idea of the cost? I know very few insurance companies cover it.
Has anyone tried Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for depression?

This question was originally posted back in 2011, so I don't know why this site is posting it again, as it had several comments on it. I've done the TMS therapy 2 sessions (of 24-30 treatments each) and it helps - greatly! I'm continuing to lower on the opiates for chronic pain, and the large drops have triggered major depression, that's why I've needed to go for 2 sessions. This works - fantastic! No anti-depressants or psych meds ever helped, and I've tried 28 different meds. TMS therapy has been the only thing that has otreated my depression! If you have any questions I'd be glad to give you any information that I can. - ElizaJane
