I had bilateral ECT in 1993 after much touting by my doctor at that time. Since I went off all medication during the treatments, I wound up depressed, with impaired memory (still hasn't returned), and possibly impaired brain function (I'm not sure about this, I might have been stupid to begin with). My recommendation is, unless you are on the verge of suicide, keep trying the meds.
