RTMSNeuroStar TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared safe and effective treatment for patients with depression who have not benefited from prior antidepressant medication. It works by stimulating areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with severe depression.
Because it is not a depression drug, NeuroStar TMS Therapy is free from the side effects that patients often experience when they take antidepressant medication.
