Overview

rTMS has been shown to have sustained response effect in the improvement of symptoms of various disorders when compared to drug interventions, such as depression. Drug-resistant depression can be benefitted from rTMS treatment as it results in the reduction of depressive symptoms as well as anxiety symptoms in case of co-morbid conditions of depression and anxiety. Moreover, rTMS can be quite useful in the treatment of anxiety with other co-morbid conditions such as depression. There have been some studies that have shown rTMS to increase anxiety when administered on people with panic disorder. However, a very small percentage of people report worsening of anxiety while most report feeling calmer, reduced worry, and feeling an enhanced ability of coping with their stressors.

rTMS is considered a usually safe and well-tolerated treatment option. It can cause certain side effects which are usually mild and temporary such as headaches, tingling sensation, scalp discomfort, or light-headedness. It is usually used when the conventional methods of treatment such as medications and psychotherapy do not work.
