Now there’s hope
If you are suffering from depression, you are not alone.
Approximately 14 million people in the U.S. live with this serious illness
About 4 million of these do not benefit from standard antidepressant medication
NeuroStar TMS Therapy® may be able to help, with effective, non-drug treatment for depression that is bringing new hope to patients every day.
NeuroStar TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared safe and effective treatment for patients with depression who have not benefited from prior antidepressant medication. It works by stimulating areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with severe depression.
Because it is not a depression drug, NeuroStar TMS Therapy is free from the side effects that patients often experience when they take antidepressant medication. It is uses targeted magnetic pulses to stimulate key areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with depression.
Patients are awake and alert during treatment – which occurs in the doctor’s office. Each treatment lasts about 37 minutes and patients can go back to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Treatment is administered 5 days a week, for approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
NeuroStar TMS Therapy may not be right for everyone. Ask a TMS Specialist at Poplar Springs Hospital if NeuroStar TMS Therapy could be right for you. For more information or to schedule a consultation, call 866-546-2229.
