I have heard the 80% figure thrown around, although I can't find any really substantial research now that I have looked for it.

Once my p-doc repeated the 80% figure I just figured it was true....he is a huge hot-shot that's won Doctor of the Year awards, and other accolades for his rTMS clinic. Everyone I encounter (my old p-doc, my psychologist, my neurologist, my GP) has heard of him and seems to think that he is god's gift to mental health, although with each visit I am growing less and less sure of that. I'm certainly not improving, that is for sure, and I have been with him for over six months now. Of course, I know that in psychiatry time that's really only a few minutes. The meds take so damn long to offer any sort of relief, if they do at all.
