It's not surprising that you were assigned rTMS after medications didn't work. rTMS is common in such cases. It usually takes five days a week for up to six weeks and the therapy shows nice results. However, you should know about the side affects, although they are minimal: lightheadedness, mild headaches, temporary hearing problems resulting from the magnet noise, tingling in the face, jaw or scalp, scalp irritation where the magnetic pulses were directed. Don't worry because you can get rid of all the side affects with over-the-counter pain medifications.
