There was an interesting article posted by a physician about ECT. He pointed out that it ruptures the blood brain barrier. There is trans cranial magnetic stimulation which sounds less intrusive - more popular in Canada recently approved in the US. There is also vaginal nerve stimulation.

I don't like taking drugs for my depression but unfortunately I haven't found an alternative. Given the three choices identified above if I had to pick one I would probably go with transcranial magnetic stimulation, but I don't know very much about any of these options.

Like others have said it is probably best to explore other drug therapies for resorting to ECT.

If you want the article I mentioned - reply to this post and I'll see if I can dig it up.

Good luck, hang in there. My doc had suggested ECT for me several years ago - that is when I switched docs. Things weren't working out and I had to go in the hospital but I got better with drug therapy.
