What are the side effects of rTMS?

The side effects experienced from Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) are very minimal. rTMS is an effective depression treatment without the traditional side effects of medication.

Short term side effects you may experience include headaches, tingling or discomfort at site of treatment and lightheadedness.

Studies have shown that although long term negative side effects from rTMS are minimal, there is a very small risk of seizure with rTMS, however according to the University of Michigan, in 10,000 treatments there was not a single seizure episode recorded.
