Thanks Phillipa for that information. That is quite scary. I dont see why psychatrists wont acknowledge that some (maybe most?) people do have lasting effects from ECT. I have not talked to one person who has had it that said they didnt have long term memory loss. My Aunty for example, has never been the same since she had it. Take care

> Only what I saw in the hospital while a pt. This lady had ECT. Before it she was very alert and remembered everything. She was so intent on killing herself as her twin brother had done that they gave her ECT. She went home for a few days after tx, and when she came back into the hospital she couldn't remember anything. It scared me and I still think of her today and wonder if she ever got better. I'd love to hear some positive reports. Fondly, Phillipa
