Anyone tried TMS and ECT for SZ?

Anyone tried Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or Electroconvulsive Therapy for negative and cognitive symptoms of SZ?
Did it help?

I did ECT. I feel it messed up my short term memory and the small affect it did to my depression, was short lived. :koala::koala::koala:


Did your negative and cognitive symptoms improve with it?

Yes. But it didn’t last. :zebra::zebra::zebra:

Is TMS that thing with the helmet? My psychiatrist introduced me to that recently but I cannot afford it. ECT sounds barbaric, don’t know how effective it is, but I don’t think I’d ever have it done.

I think so, its a big 8 shaped medical magnet.

How long did it last and were receiving ECT every week?

I recieved ECT, Monday, Wednesday, Friday for 2 weeks so 6 sessions. I say it lasted about a month. I would not recommend it. :bear::bear::bear:


Thanks, I will forget it :grin:
