Which patients are good candidates for TMS Therapy?
NeuroStar TMS Therapy is an appropriate treatment option for adult patients with Major Depressive Disorder who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from one prior antidepressant medication at or above the minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode.
In clinical trials, half of the patients had been treated with at least four medication treatment attempts, one of which was at an adequate dose and duration.
NeuroStar TMS Therapy has not been studied in patients who have not received prior antidepressant treatment. Efficacy has not been established in patients who have failed to receive benefit from two or more prior antidepressant medications at minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode.
Not all patients are appropriate candidates for NeuroStar TMS Therapy. To determine if NeuroStar TMS Therapy may be right for you, talk with your physician.
