I'm with Afraid on several points. One is looking
into dietary issues in the first place. This has
been as big a struggle for me as dealing with my
depression--giving up all that stuff that tastes
sooooooooo good but still messes with my mind.
I have to question just how effective my meds
can be when I'm drinking 2+ liters of diet coke
a day and sneaking starbursts and other candies
along the way as well.

Another great point is the rest of the "bad joke".
When I first started on meds (zoloft), I was going
through quite a roller coaster that first month or
so. I was at 100 mg Zoloft/day then, and I went in
to my doc to ask, no, beg for an increase to 150.
He told me to start seeing my therapist more often,
get plenty of strenuous exercise, and get off my
butt and deal with a few situations I thought I
was too anxious about to deal with -- then he would
talk about boosting the meds. It was a swift kick
in the fanny at just about exactly the right time
and it worked wonders. If only I had kept it up.

Anyway, what do folks know about repetitive
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as an
alternative to ECT?
