Symptoms

Although depression may occur only once during your life, people typically have multiple episodes. During these episodes, symptoms occur most of the day, nearly every day and may include:

  • Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness
  • Anger outbursts, irritability or frustration
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much
  • Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort
  • Reduced appetite and weight loss or increased cravings for food and weight gain
  • Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements
  • Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or self-blame
  • Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things
  • Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide

For many people with depression, symptoms usually are severe enough to cause noticeable problems in day-to-day activities, such as work, school, social activities or relationships with others.

Management and Treatment

How is depression treated?

Depression is one of the most treatable mental health conditions.

Treatment options include:

  • Psychotherapy: There are many forms of talk therapy that can benefit a patient with depression.
  • Medication: There are several different types of antidepressants, and it may take time to figure out the one that’s best for you. Response to medication varies from person to person as do the side effects. About 1 in 3 patients of depression might not respond to medication at all.
  • Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: TMS or rTMS is a non-invasive method of neurostimulation. A low-intensity magnetic field is employed via a coil to stimulate the regions of the brain that have been primarily affected by depression. TMS has proved to be effective in patients who are not responding to medication and in those for whom medication is not a feasible option. TMS can also be applied along with medication and therapy to accentuate the treatment response since it’s tolerated by most and has minimal side effects.

Repetitive TMS may be used when standard treatments such as medicines, and talk therapy, known as psychotherapy, don't work.

During an rTMS session for depression, an electromagnetic coil is placed against the scalp of your head. This coil delivers magnetic pulses that stimulate nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and depression. It's thought to activate regions of the brain that have decreased activity during depression.

The stimulation appears to affect how the brain is working. It seems to ease depression symptoms and improve mood.

Since TMS is a non-invasive treatment, it is tolerated by most patients and does not cause any long-lasting side effects.

If you are feeling depressed, make an appointment to see your doctor or mental health professional as soon as you can.

Reviews of people sharing their experiences.

I had been suffering from depression for years before getting TMS treatment. I had tried several antidepressants in the past. I had to keep changing medications because either they weren’t working or due to side-effects. In the bargain, this took a toll on my personal and professional life.

I decided to try Tms after losing hope with my depression. I am glad I made the decision to undergo TMS treatment. I was able to gain back happiness that I have yearned for. Tms has been life changing for me.

Pritam Mishra

I didn't know what was wrong with me until my doctor told me I was depressed. But, I was planning to get pregnant at that time and didn't want to use any medicines. That was when I found out about TMS Mindspace. Under their care, with regular TMS, I started feeling better. Dr. Ooha was very understanding of my situation and accommodated my sessions into my daily schedule.

Thanks to them, I was able to pursue my plans with no interference from my treatment and my mental health has never been better than it is now.
