> ECT can certainly work. For me I found 3 weeks of it to just about completely get rid of depression. There are other problems though...the forgetfulness from ECT is pretty intense. I find myself writing a lot of notes and reminders to myself which I never had to do before. Though I've never heard of sexual side effects from ECT, I have them pretty fierce, when no amount of any drugs ever gave me much problem. I've been doing 3 outpatient ECT sessions per week for 3 weeks, and now I am going to cut it back to just once a week for a while and see how that goes. All in all it seems like a very effective treatment, but I must admit the side effects of confusion and the sexual dysfunction side effects are pretty intense.

Trust me..those side effects will fade with time.
