Would Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) be appropriate for a person who has managed major depression for many years with medication, but who would prefer to stop taking medications?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is FDA approved for Major Depression. It is titrated and delivered to improve symptoms of depression, though it is not generally used for depression when people do not have a major depressive syndrome. It is possible to get an evaluation for TMS, and to consider starting TMS when symptoms recur.
