How Many People Have Gone Through ECT (electroconvulsive Therapy)?

How Many People Have Gone Through ECT (electroconvulsive Therapy)?

How has it affected your brain? Ive done 16 rounds and my memory is completely shot.
Have you found relief from your depression with this treatment?

I did 6 treatments in 2007. I was supposed to do 11 but I was so confused and couldn't remember anything. But it did help the depression some

@A MyDepressionTeam Member I'm sorry you had that reaction to ECT. I have had ECT and it did stop my suicidal thoughts. I only had about 8 or 10 treatments though. I can't believe they gave you that many treatments if your memory was being affected. What does the doctor say about your memory? Does he/she want to continue treatments? Best of luck to you.

I touched a bare wire with 240v. Does that count?

I’ve not done the therapy and from depression and ptsd my memory is completely shot. Just food for thought. Might not be entirely the treatment. Hugs.
