ECT can produce some benefits. But it can also produce significant, even severe, memory loss. Memory loss is kind of like severe pain, in that you can't really imagine it until you experience it.

My experience with ECT was marred by prolonged seizures and memory loss. A lot of memory loss. And loss or impairment of certain mental abilities.

I believe we don't know enough about how ECT works or what it really does to the brain. Extensive study is needed before it proceeds beyond the status of treatment of last resort.
