Hi, PCB.

> But it sounds like everyone at pbabble is stating I may have been mislead. And ECT is not effective and actually damaging. Really confused!

I'm confused, too. Historically, there has been a lot of research on ECT, but don't see a convincing consensus. My experience with ECT is that it was ineffective and produced worrisome cognitive side effects. However, my depression has been characterized by memory impairment and slowing of thoughts. It is difficult for me to know if ECT produced persistent impairments.

I am reluctant to make any recommendations. I would hate to persuade someone to avoid a treatment that ultimately would have worked for them. I am encouraged to hear that ECT made your drug treatment work better.
