Would Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) be appropriate for a person who has managed major depression for many years with medication, but 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. However it is not generally used for depression in individuals who have not been diagnosed with major depressive syndrome. It is possible to get an evaluation for TMS and consider starting TMS when symptoms recur.
