Starting rTMS Treatment
You choose when to start the treatment.
Starting rTMS: On the first day, your motor threshold and treatment intensity will be determined. Objective measurement of your depression symptoms will be completed by our mental health (TMS) technician. You are now ready to start your first session of rTMS treatment.
The rTMS sessions are 20 minutes long and you will receive 3000 magnetic pulses per session.
How long is it before benefits from rTMS are observed?
Patients need 20 to 30 sessions of rTMS to derive the most benefit in the treatment of their depression. “In clinical trials, one in two patients achieved significant relief of symptoms after four weeks of treatment and one in three experience complete remission after six weeks of treatment. Some patients may experience results in less time, while others may take longer.” Patients are reassessed for clinical progress by the Consultant Psychiatrist after set intervals.
During the course of TMS treatment, the TMS technician continually re-evaluates your condition and response to the treatment as well as conducting periodic re-evaluations of the dose level and coil position to ensure the most effective treatment.
