    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Reporter looking for people with experience of electrical stimulation treatment for depression. Have you had DBS, rTMS or TDSC and did it work for you?
    KKreporter posted:
    I'm an international health correspondent based in London. I'm researching and writing a feature on the latest advances in treating major depressive disorder and would love to hear from people who have had success (or otherwise) with electrical stimulation treatment. Have you had rTMS, TDCS or DBS? And how did it work for you? Please reply to this post and if you're happy to be interviewed we can continue our discussion on email or via phone if that suits better.
    Kind regards, Kate

    I have only had ECT. That worked for awhile. I've been trying to receive one of the treatments above but I can't seem to get any ones help. I'm interested in the replies you receive.
