NeuroStar TMS Therapy
A new answer to depression
Remission from depression is now possible with an innovative procedure
which delivers magnetic pulses to stimulate the brain.
Feeling upset and sad from time to time is normal. But when these feelings are there all the time or they affect your everyday routine, you may be suffering from depression. In the US, 16 million people have experienced a major depressive episode in the past year.
Over the last decades, many ways have been introduced to treat depression. The most common is perscribing antidepressant medication, a way which has helped many people but hasn’t helped others.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is an innovative, FDA-cleared therapy that can help people who struggle with Major Depressive Disorder even after taking antidepressant medication.
It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field, and is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
Because NeuroStar is a non-drug treatment, people don’t experience side effects like those associated with antidepressant medications. The most common side effect is temporary pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site. These effects are temporary and do not occur for most people after the first week of treatment.
Precisely targeted NeuroStar Advanced Therapy makes long-term remission possible — which is why it’s the #1 choice.

Facts about TMS
TMS Therapy has been studied by researchers for 20+ years
NeurStar TMS Therapy was FDA-cleared in 2008
It is non-systemic and non-invasive
It does not circulate in the blood throughout the body
It does not involve surgery, anesthesia, or sedation
There have been over 2 million treatments provided so far in the US.
It is provided at 7 of the top 10 Psychiatry Hospitals in the US
No systemic side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth and sedation
Rare risk of seizure associated with TMS
What you do in a a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:
Recline comfortably in the treatment chair
A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.
NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain.
After treatment you can resume normal activities immediately
NeuroStar TMS Therapy is only available by prescription. A doctor can help decide if NeuroStar TMS Therapy is right for you.
Important Safety Information
The most common side effect is pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site. These events are transient; they occur during the TMS treatment course and do not occur for most patients after the first week of treatment. There is a rare risk of seizure associated with the use of NeuroStar TMS (<0.1% per patient).
NeuroStar TMS Therapy should not be used with patients who have non-removable conductive metal in or near the head. NeuroStar TMS Therapy has not been studied in patients who have not received prior antidepressant treatment.
