No. It hasn't been approved by the FDA as yet, so everyone has to find a way to pay for it. At least it's cheaper than ECT- $150 per treatment as of 2008. And there are never any problems with memory.

Most people do take medication in addition. If therapeutic doses of drugs are combined with TMS, the remission rate with Dr. Hutto is about 70%. The 50% improvement rate is for TMS alone.

When I first started having TMS in 2004, I was taking Lexapro and Wellbutrin in pretty high doses. Gradually, I weaned off of them while continuing to go back to Atlanta for maintenance TMS. Now, I'm pretty much depression-free, provided I go back for maintenance about every four to six months. I do take a low dose of Lithium- 300 mg.

I should mention that I would never in the world have known about TMS without Babble. I learned all about it on the 2003
Medication board.
