Seems to work for some but I don't recommend it.

At first it seemed to help it lifted a severe depression I could not come out of. After another round of treatments I experienced a complete personality change and terrible memory loss.

I will be happy to chat with anyone about ECT electro convulsive therapy. I have undergone treatment twice three and a half years apart six sessions each time. I feel incredibly spacey have trouble putting sentences together and have a poor memory. After the first ECT round I swore I would never do it again. But my mind came back. I know that while I suffer the side effects they will wear off.
Working / Worked
Biggest blessing ever and the only reason I'm alive. I've been on all other meds and had NO improvement, so, I didn't bother to check all of them off.
Working / Worked
It worked the first 2 times but not the third and I'm still having memory problems, not sure if it just me or if it was a side effect.
Working / Worked
Damaged my short term memory. 22 treatments in 11 days when I was talked into it by my pdoc at age 18.
