    Has anyone here had the treatment for bipolar depression? I already have insurance approval but I am worried it will be a waste of time. I have been on over a dozen antidepressants for a 30 year period so I am treatment-resistant to say the least! So it’s either this or ECT. The side effects of the latter scare me but I also know it is more likely to work.



    Yes, at the TMS clinic I help to run, we often treat patients with bipolar depression. As there is a small risk of getting flipped to mania, we have to be more careful with patients with a history of bipolar than the typical unipolar depression patients. I would definitely consider TMS before ECT… let me know if you have any questions.
