Toby and Others...curious about ect

Posted by pej on January 12, 1999, at 20:43:51

As I've mentioned, I have been on meds for a long time.
Off and on, mostly on since mid eighties. My mother, may she rest in peace, was given ect for a major bout with depression years ago and it was effective.
After re-reading a reply of yours in August to someone who was manic, you higly recommended ect. Of course, the inquirer was unsuccessful with meds and side effects.
My question is, do you think ect would be a safer option in the long run than staying on meds? I am not suicidal and get along as best I can but wonder if ect
would be a wiser, though maybe costlier, way to go?
Should ect in general be a more first line defense?
Thank you very much. Phil
