Types of Depression that TMS Therapy Treats
There are different forms of depression within the depression spectrum. TMS therapy can treat different types of depression in patients who are medication-resistant, including:
- Major depressive disorder (MDD). MDD is diagnosed when 5 of the 9 diagnostic criteria established in the DSM-5 have persisted for more than two weeks.
- Seasonal affective disorder (SAD). SAD occurs during the winter months when limited daylight can result in depression. Lack of vitamin D, which is derived from sunlight, is a component.
- Post-partum disorder. Following childbirth, some women experience extreme depression symptoms, mood swings, anger, and anxiety triggered by extreme hormonal shifts.
- Premenstrual dysphoric disorder. A severe form of PMS that features extreme mood swings, sadness, irritability, and anger.
- Persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia). Dysthymia features long-term low mood that persists for more than two years with two other symptoms of depression from the list of criteria.
