This study followed up patients enrolled in Dr Carpenter’s 2012 study for a duration of 1 year.
The results show that with appropriate maintenance the effects of TMS last for at least 1 year in 71% of patients who enter remission, and in 62% of patients who respond. It also shows that if a patient relapses after a course of TMS, they have a very high chance of benefitting from another course of treatment.
