Hi Denise.. I'm always happy to answer if I can help! I think all the people giving TMS want to know if you have a seizure DISORDER; having one seizure while taking so much medication would probably not disqualify you in the eyes of Dr. Hutto, for example. (the doctor who administered TMS to me). I have no seizure history; but, when he was determining the amount of electromagnetic current to give me, he said it was going to be the maximum amount, and that I could possibly have a seizure, but said that that did not worry him, as they were prepared to keep me safe if I did have one. (I didn't). Someone like Dr Hutto, who has given ECT for 20 years, and added TMS 2 years ago, is so experienced that a seizure is not a big deal at all. It sounds as though the doctors you consulted are more worried, although they probably don't need to be.

Did they really turn you down because of that one incident? If so, I'm very sorry to hear it. I do think TMS is so well worth trying if you can't get into remission with medication. There are really no side effects- in particular, one's short-term memory remains perfect.

Do let me know what happens.
