Depression

“My psychiatrist knows Dr. Molina and we’d exhausted everything else. TMS has played a crucial role in my recovery, and after IV and nasal ketamine treatments, my depression is gone.”

-Daniel S 

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living.

Depression is considered treatment-resistant if the individual hasn’t responded to adequate doses of two different antidepressants taken for a sufficient duration of time, which is usually six weeks.
