Default E.C.T. treatments

I am so bad off that I have considered the one thing that I never thought that I would consider, Electro Convulsive therapy. I even went as far as to ask my prescriber if she thought it was an option...she said that she doesn't think so. I have been on nearly every medicine in every combination there is known to man....what am I to do to get this Bell Jar to lift? Things are getting much much much worse. No relief in sight.

Why doesn't your prescriber think this is an option? I think you should be able to try anything and everything that might pull you out of this muck.

I will tell you why NOT to choose ect. First off if it works, fine, but what if you relapse?
You will not know how your brain recovered and therefore ect will be your only option to get well again so begins a cycle of reliance.
Figure it out naturally, don't rely on a quick fix. It will make things worse.

Where theres a will there's a way x sorry i hope i have n't dampened your spirits

I also am considering ECT too. I have been on lots of different meds in the past two years, and the meds that use to work, no longer help at all. I just can't find a doctor who does it in my city. I've tried going to another major city hospital for advice, but they could not help me very much. I know for a fact that ECT is NOT a quick fix! It may take several treatments for things to change. It also can be supplemented with medication as well. Even if I may need more treatments in the future, who cares as long as it works for me!

Sounds like frying your neuron cells if you ask me!
