About Dysthymic disorder
In more than three-quarters of clients with dysthymic disorder, treatment with rTMS is successful and the symptoms decrease by an average of 75%.
Form of depression
The dysthymic disorder is a less serious form of depression. However, this disorder is more persistent and more chronic in nature. For at least two years there must be a depressive mood with two or more depressive symptoms in addition. With a dysthymic disorder, there is often anger, inequality and behavioral problems compared to depression. People with a dysthymic disorder have little pleasure in life, they often feel unhappy and lonely. In contrast to depression, daily functioning remains possible, but it is limited by the disorder. Because a dysthymic disorder is often persistent and long-term, it is considered more severe than depression.
Positive result with rTMS treatment
More than three-quarters of clients with a dysthymic disorder have a positive result with the rTMS treatment. Complaints decrease by an average of 70%. A treatment at rTMS International consists of 20-30 treatments. This is to achieve lasting positive results. We will schedule an introductory meeting with you prior to treatment. This conversation is intended to get a clearer picture of your depression-related symptoms. rTMS has a long-term effect in depression after the treatment has ended. After a treatment or ten positive effects are often noticeable. In some cases, after six or twelve months or even later, a number of maintenance treatments are needed to maintain the same (anti-depressive) effect of rTMS. Curious about what rMTS can do for you?
