TMS - where can I get it?

Posted by qwerty224466 on October 11, 2005, at 15:05:09

I have tried about 15 medications including MAOIs over the past three years and nothing has helped my depression. I am looking into TMS and ECT treatments. My job requires a good memory so I am going to try TMS first. But, I went to an appointment with a psychiatrist in my area and was told that because most of my medication trials were only two months, and therefore too short, that he could not give me TMS treatment. The reason for this is because I do not tolerate medicine very well, especially when taken for long periods of time. It makes my symptoms worse and gives me this very uncomfortable anxiety that benzos do not help.

He told me about a few other TMS centers at various places around the country, but I am worried that they will give me the same answer. Is there any place I can go to, perhaps canada or europe, where TMS has been approved and I will not have so many problems getting treatment? I have money saved up and am willing to travel for long periods of time, I just want to try this treatment as soon as possible.
