Depression Symptoms and Options
Depression manifests itself in different ways, but there are many common symptoms that can be indicative of this mental illness. These symptoms include, but are not limited to, a loss of interest or pleasure in your activities, weight loss or gain, trouble getting back to sleep or feeling sleepy during the day, constantly feeling restless and agitated, or on the flip side rather sluggish and slowed down, being tired and lacking energy, feeling worthless or guilty without any apparent direct cause, thoughts of suicide, and trouble concentrating or making decisions. If you consistently experience several of these symptoms across a prolonged period of weeks or months, you should first talk with a mental health professional who can help you find ways to cope with your depression. They may prescribe medications labeled antidepressants to help you feel better and alleviate symptoms.
TMS Therapy Can Help Treat Severe Clinical Depression
There are many different types of depression treatment, and one revolutionary new way that has been shown to be very effective at treating depression is transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS. TMS uses a magnet to send magnetic waves through your brain, much like an MRI scan, and helps stimulate certain areas of your brain, assisting your brain in letting the parts of it that control your mood function better. Although this type of treatment is a newer treatment for depression, TMS is a treatment cleared by the FDA with a track record of proven results both by research and experience. Many therapists have experienced great success prescribing TMS therapy to treat their clients’ depression. Patients generally report a significant reduction in depressive symptoms and regaining at least some of their quality of life following a regular course of TMS sessions. TMS is most effective on adult patients with major depression who have not responded to at least one course of antidepressants, and patients who are interested in TMS therapy should discuss the option with their doctors before going ahead with the treatment.
