tDCS — Effective treatment for depression

Trans-cra­nial Direct Cur­rent Sti­mu­la­tion (tDCS) is an effec­ti­ve and safe treat­ment for the symp­toms of depres­sion. Accor­ding to the treat­ment results, 61% of patients have bene­fi­ted sig­ni­ficant­ly from tDCS treat­ment and 20% have reac­hed the asymp­to­ma­tic pha­se. Accor­ding to the results, the majo­ri­ty of patients who comple­ted the treat­ment cycle recei­ved sig­ni­ficant relief of symp­toms wit­hin about three weeks.1

tDCS is a pain­less treat­ment with no dis­tur­bing side effects. With the easy-to-use device most of the treat­ments are made inde­pen­dent­ly at home. tDCS may be the only treat­ment for depres­sion, but it can also be well com­bi­ned with the­ra­py and medica­tion.

Self-assessment of the symptoms of depression

The Beck’s Depres­sion Inven­to­ry (BDI) is a self-admi­nis­te­red ques­tion­nai­re that can be used to assess the seve­ri­ty of depres­si­ve symp­toms. Howe­ver, the result of the sur­vey does not allow for direct diag­no­sis. The sur­vey can be found at the link below.
