TMS is a Treatment, not a Cure

Studies have shown that 90% of TMS patients who were started on an antidepressant during the tapering phase, were able to sustain the benefits of TMS 6 months after completion of an acute course of TMS Therapy.

For patients whose depression symptoms may return, maintenance TMS Therapy of “booster” treatment sessions is available. Usually, the sooner you receive booster treatments after some relapse of depression, the less number of TMS sessions are needed to restore benefits.

Some of our patients have been able to sustain remission without use of any medications for 3-12 months at a time, whereas others choose to return for monthly booster treatments to prevent relapse.
