Hi ravenstorm.. I initially had 15 treatments at a rate of one per day. I'm one of those people who really respond to TMS, so I got into remission after about four days. Dr. Hutto suggested another week of treatment to help the remission last, and then left it up to me whether i wanted to do a third week. I decided to do it- i don't know whether it helped more, or not. You'll find all kinds of initial treatment protocols, from two weeks to five, depending on who is doing it. I have become convinced that skill in applying the magnetic coil is VERY important, as this type of current does not penetrate further than 2 cm into your brain, although it does cause sort of relay changes in neurons farther away. I think Dr. Best is just as experienced and successful as Dr. Hutto- he's been doing it about as long. They have very informative literature that you can request. It might be worth finding out whether Dr. Best gives double sessions during initial treatment- that would cut down the time you need to spend away from work. I read a little blurb from someone who goes to him regularly to control a psychotic depression. For maintenance, he has THREE sessions a day for two days as maintenance. They fully expect you to keep up any medications you feel are helpful- even if just a little.
