> I have never understood how TMS could provide an effective long-term option for treatment of anxiety and depression. Even if it does influence neuronal firing and neurotransmitter levels, wouldn't it need to be an at-home lifetime treatment to have the long-term benefits it's supposed to bestow? And if it does require such "chronic" treatment, my god, who could afford it?

I think the idea is that if it helps the person come out of their depression for long enough, they can learn to live in a new way, learn to be happier -- that way since they have learned it, the benefits may stick around for some time.

Like so some meds that I no longer that seem to have left an imprint in my psyche because of what they taught me, or rather the adaptive ways of living that I learned from it.

For example even if I stop taking my stimulant, while a lot of symptoms return, I am definitely less ADHD than I was before I started to take stims. It's like the saying practice makes perfect.

It's like some people who are able to take meds for a short while then stop them when they are better enough. Then again I believe you have a valid point. I saw a website for ketamine therapy local to me that said there are some people who need to continue the treatment indefinitely.
