Are they any side effects?
There are no side effects to this treatment. You can drive yourself to the clinic and drive yourself home immediately afterwards with no changes necessary to your habits or routines.
Can I also do Ketamine therapy?
Yes, in fact, studies have shown that Ketamine treatment immediately prior to TMS can increase the benefits of the treatment.
Are there any disqualifiers?
Yes. History of seizure disorder, non-removable metal in or near the head, and psychosis are all contraindicated.
Is TMS the same as ECT?
No. TMS is non-invasive treatment with little-to-no side effects.
Is TMS like other alternative therapies that use magnets to treat some illnesses?

No. TMS techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. These alternative therapies are not capable of activating brain cells.
