Is rTMS Safe?

Is Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) safe?

Here at The London Psychiatry Centre we have an extensive body of knowledge covering thousands and thousands of patient examples. Numerous clinical trials, medical research studies and peer-reviewed articles have confirmed the value of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in treating treatment-resistant depression.

You can rest assured that rTMS is regarded as a considerably safe treatment, with very low risk of side effects.

Frequently, it works where other interventions have failed.

rTMS treatment is completely non-invasive: it doesn’t require any needles or anaesthetic. Since the only thing entering your body is pure energy, rTMS is free from the many side effects associated with antidepressant medications (stomach complaints, lowered libido, etc.). It is administered as an outpatient procedure for just over half an hour per session.

If you would like more information about rTMS or would like to speak to a member of our team about booking a consultation, please don’t hesitate to call us on 020 7580 4224.
