Yes, VNS has been approved as a treatment for depression in Canada.

That's true, VNS is expensive, but did you know there wil be a study around the spring at MUSC at North Carolina. I spoke with the nurse over there.


What's been going on with you?

I'm in a big dispair. Currently I'm on Reboxetine and Stelazine, but they don't work for my anergy. I have no more medications to try, and those that I tried in the past don't work anymore. I developed a resistence to them.

I was in Atlanta to get some TMS, but I had to come back because my meds stopped working and my depression got worse.
I had only four sessions, but now I'm very sceptical whethet TMS works at all.
How are you doing, Scott?
