In the series ‘On Demand' hosted by Rob Lowe, the program discusses TMS therapies and how they work. TMS stands for trans-cranial magnetic stimulation. It is usually used on patients suffering from major depressive disorder or associated complications. The program explains why this form of treatment is preferred, and why it may be safer than many other treatment options. He also discusses the effects that TMS therapies have on patients with pharmacoresistant depression. Studies have shown that patients who have had little or no failed antidepressant treatment in the past have a higher chance of success with TMS therapy. R
The treatment involves placement of an electromagnetic coil on the patient’s scalp or close to their forehead. A magnetic pulse is transmitted to the brain’s nerve cells that are responsible for mood control. It also stimulates areas of the brain with low activity. Even though there are debates as to why this works, the program will show patients whose lives have been transformed.
The episode will also discuss the common minor side effects of this treatment option. Some may include; lightheadedness, tingling of facial muscles, headaches and discomfort.
The award-winning program provides all the information one needs to have when preparing for the treatment or after the treatment in an informative and entertaining way.
