How long does Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation take to work with Depression?


A course of 30 sessions given over consecutive weekdays is recommended for effective therapeutic results. This can vary from patient to patient as many factors are to be considerate and tailor to each individual depending on the nature and severity of the problem and the individual response to the treatment.

At the Montreal Neurotherapy Center we will develop a personalized course of treatment base on an in-depth assessment that can be readjusted to the patient progress. rTMS therapy involves a sequence of treatment sessions. A Session duration is around 30 – 40 minutes.

Some patients may notice changes after only several days of treatment! If possible, We recommend 2 to 4 sessions a day.
