This study was designed to evaluate the effects of Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in depression patients, with (n=11) or without (n=12) concomitant Alcohol Use Disorders (AUD). In the study, following 20 Deep TMS treatments, there was a substantial improvement of symptoms across groups, with faster improvement in patients who suffered from both depression and AUD. Significantly, these beneficial effects of the treatment were still visible at the 6-month follow-up. The study showed that Deep TMS is well tolerated and effective in depression patients, both with and without alcohol use disorder.
