Had ECT, failed 11 treatments. Made me a brain dead zombie and shattered my memory forever. Was so confused, got worse and worse. Was about 10 years ago. Unilateral. Got my records to review years later. Make sure you get yours too. Every session I got worse and they should not have continued. The MD was a real nutcase. I had Severe memory loss. I am sorry I had it. I would do Ketamine IV over ECT any day. Have been on every Med known since 1987. Had TMS. Best meds are MAOs for my chronic, intractable depression.
I am better today because of what I have learned over the years. Worked as an RN in ECT at large well known med Cyr and feel most pts did poorly but MD lied and said most had a robust response with only STM loss. Not true. He was fed motivated by $$$. If it worked for you before that is a good sign. I would proceed cautiously, get the best doc and hope for the best. Currently I take Nardil, Ritalin, Seroquel, DL Phenylalanine(my decision). My doc lets me do things he is not familiar with because I do better research than him.
