In comparison with other treatments for depression, rTMS has been shown to have very few adverse or undesirable effects. Generally speaking, the side effects of rTMS are relatively mild.
The most common potential side effects of rTMS are the following:
Headaches in 10 to 20% of the cases. These headaches usually go away with the help of analgesic medications like acetaminophen or paracetamol.
Light-headedness and mild somnolence after sessions.
Noise (your physician will provide you with earplugs).
Very rarely, manic or mixed symptoms (agitation, irritability).
Seizures or convulsions (1 in 1000 patients).
In order to reduce the above-mentioned side effects and in order to avoid complications, the physician who will administer rTMS will scrupulously follow all safety recommendations adopted by the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN, www.ifcn.info) and by the International Society for Transcranial Stimulation.
