In 2014, Phillip J. Seibell and Eric Hollander published a detailed study that examined various treatment options for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The study outlined the causes of OCD and the best ways to treat it, including antidepressants and other treatment options. The authors concluded that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) might be the best option for some patients. They decided that TMS seems to be an effective treatment option for those with treatment-resistant OCD but that more studies would need to be done to gather more research.
And now, just a few years later, TMS has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for OCD. If you’re struggling to control your OCD symptoms, TMS might be a great option for you.
