In reply to ECT, posted by gibbons482 on August 23, 2009, at 17:32:50

Thank you for chiming in and providing some alternative positive outcomes! I had 11 ECTs myself. After the 10th I felt benefit, but then the side effects really were too much to handle and my veins were swollen from the IVs so I thankfully had to stop. I was neither suicidal nor comatose when I had ECT done. But three doctors recommended it for me for my TRD.

> I just wanted to chime in that I've had ECT and didn't have the problems others experienced. I was suicidally depressed and constantly planning to commit suicide. I didn't have time to wait for medication to work. I had 8 unilateral ECT's, and I had great results. I have lost my memories of the time period I have having ECT but nothing else. But I see a few missing memories are worth it compared with suicidal depression.
> I just wanted to point out there are some ECT success stories.
