Currently, TMS is FDA approved for the treatment of major depression in adults. At Psychiatric Associates of Austin, we are using TMS not only to treat depression, but obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and autism spectrum disorder in children, adolescents, and adults. Nearly 100% of our patients with depression have significant improvement in their depressive symptoms and daily functioning. Our patients with OCD have had greater than 50% decrease in their OCD thoughts and behaviors. The patients that we have treated for autism spectrum disorder have decreased their scores on the Cambridge Rating Scale by greater than 40%. Parents, family members, and caregivers report improved social interaction, decreased rigidity, decreased Impulsivity, improved self-regulation, and reactivity, and decreased compulsive/repetitive behaviors. We encourage individuals with questions about the benefits of TMS for their unique situation to schedule an individualized consultation.
