Anyone tried Tms for Ocd

Hi...has anyone tried tms for Ocd? I am desperate to find relief from the ruminating thoughts. My Ocd stemmed from trauma. Please help, thanks,

I am 4 1/2 weeks in. I feel it’s helped me a little bit. They say you feel effects at 4 to5 weeks. I’m praying this is true. You should definitely try it. Don’t leave any treatment on the table. Helpful hint play up the depression you get from the ocd as depression is covered by insurance ocd is fda approved but not yet covered by insurance. Good luck!

Thanks for the tips. I am happy to hear it’s working for you. I have to keep trying. Do you take medication also?

Depression is less. Ocd is the same. I used depression TMS. Ocd TMS is not covered by insurance. When it is I will definitely go for it.

i use activadose

Really helped with my depression when meds had not been, which allowed me to do a lot more ERP after 7 weeks. The depression has stayed at a much lower place so I'm able to keep doing ERP which is helping the OCD.
