My husband, who is very treatment-resistant, is considering participating in a research study using
Vagus Nerve Stimulation (an implanted device that is currently used for epilepsy and may have
anti-depressive effects). 40% of people with severe tx-resistant depression improved with this
device in the first study....which isn't bad given how many other therapies these people had
tried (see There are
20 study sites throughout the country (

Good luck.
