> A friend of mine had ECT. It helped his depression quite a bit. I think he had some short-term memory loss. He would get a maintenance dose about every six weeks. Then he needed them less frequently.
> Undercurrents by Martha Manning has a detailed account of her ECT experience. The book is one of the best depression memoirs I've read.

Oh .... I have read that book. Its amazing. Im reading Shock, now about Kitty Dukakis.

I knew most patients undergoing acute ECT usually require maintenance. But after watchimg Gary Gulmans, The Depresh, he made it seem like you one one set of acute treatments and then your set for life. My interest in ECT was rekindled at that point.

He didnt talk about maintenance which most doctor Im talking to tell me most patients need. I dont not want lifelong ECT at this point I guess.

Thank you so much Hugh! Your the best!
