> That's great news. Congratulations. How many sessions did you have before you started to feel better? Was your improvement gradual or sudden?

I did a total of 35 45-minute sessions spread over six weeks. After the second week I noticed not a waning of depression but rather an increase in vitality. I still felt my old miserable self, but it became far easier to get through the day. My mood waxed and waned. I spent several sessions in abject tears. I didnt find it tolerable until about 3/4 of the way through, I experienced surface pain on my scalp that hurt like heck. My right arm would flop uncontrollably if the magnetic coil wasnt in exactly the sweet spot.

The last week of treatment, my mood had begun to lighten to meet my newfound ability to function, and my depression began to ease. Im on my meds as I was before, having stopped just Prazosin. The treatment did not address anxiety - that would be the other side of the brain.

I cautiously consider this to be a success.
