- Anxiety or restlessness,
- Blurred vision,
- Weight gain,
- Decreased libido,
- Fatigue, and
There are plenty of coping strategies to minimize these side effects, and thankfully, most people don’t experience all of them. However, for a small portion of the population, the side effects caused by antidepressants are severe and disruptive to daily life.
A promising solution for these individuals is TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), a non-surgical, non-systemic therapy that targets the brain directly.
