Depression medication does not work for everyone. It is designed to alleviate bad feelings and promote positive behavior, but the chemicals affect individuals differently. Those that have experienced harsh side effects from depression medication know that the side effects could be worse than the depression.
Common depression medication side effects include:
● Blurred vision
● Weight gain
● Sexual problems
● Thoughts of suicide
If you have experienced these issues while taking anti-depression medication, you may want to consider alternative options. We offer a new and revolutionary depression therapy in Columbus: transcranial magnetic stimulation.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation, more commonly referred to as TMS therapy, was designed with the intention of treating those that cannot or do not benefit from depression medication. TMS therapy is not for everyone, meaning it is not for those that have only been recently diagnosed. Patients must try medication first before coming for our depression therapy in Columbus.
The side effects of TMS therapy are minimal compared to those of anti-depression pills. Most patients of TMS claim that the treatments only cause minor discomfort that quickly goes away after treatments.
The clinical trials about TMS claim that 5% of patients must stop treatment as a result of an adverse experience. Most commonly people claim they feel pain and discomfort around treatment sites. Pain and discomfort are worse during procedures, but those feelings begin to dissipate quickly and are gone within a week.
