Are there side effects?
Immediately post ECT headaches can be common and usually relieved with acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Thinking and memory side effects are not uncommon. Additionally, during treatment, patients cannot drive.
ECT is the most effective treatment for mood disorders including Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Bipolar Disorder, and Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). ECT is considered the best treatment when depression cooccurs with suicidal thoughts or thoughts of self-harm. Though battling a serious stigma based on depictions in cinema and on television, it is a safe, very effective procedure that has changed lives.
