Yes, I have had 3 full courses (12 sessions/ 3 per week/ one month, start to finish) over the last 12 years - always done bilaterally. Am very seriously considering them again - in my case, for these reasons:

1) I nowadays have severely diminished quality of life due to GI side-effects of all anti-ds, all classes.

2) I respond VERY quickly, then VERY well to ECTs - some improvement felt after 1 or 2; after a full course, NO anti-d has ever given me this complete, robust, and full range of feelings, remission.

I will be having another full course, then maintanence ECTs thereafter - for life. I will be refusing to take anti-ds EVER again.

I have never had a single headache; no memory loss, whatsoever. I in no way consider ECTs to be a "last resort," but until very recently, the maintanence ones were not available in my area.
Now all - full course & maintanence - are done outpatient.
