Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
TMS is a very potent treatment for Severe Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD). It has other off label uses but has FDA approval for TRD. It is indicated for patients who have failed several drug treatments for their depressive disorder and have had no relief.
It uses a magnet adopted from MRI technology to stimulate regions of the brain associated with depression. The treatment has up to a 6-8 time more potent effect where medications have failed.
Typically, you will need a daily session, 5 days a week to between 4-6 weeks. A session lasts about 20 minutes. Most insurances do cover the treatment, however it is only covered for the FDA approved indication of F332 Major Depressive Disorder Recurrent Severe.
Solace has used TMS for a variety of off label psychiatric disorders and we will be happy to discuss your options.
Solace has offered TMS treatment since 2012 and was one of the first providers in the Tampa Bay Area. We have worked with the Neurostar System since 2012 but switched to the BRAINSWAY system in 2019. We are one of the few practitioners to have upgraded to the new system in the Tampa Bay Area.
