Is TMS safe?

Yes. TMS therapy with the Brainsway Device was cleared by the FDA in Aug 2018 for OCD & a separate MagVenture coil was also cleared in Aug 2020. Additionally, TMS has been approved and used in depression since 2008. I would argue that because TMS is a local or focal treatment, it is probably as safe, if not safer, than many of the medications used which can have systemic effects throughout the entire body.
