ECT is the most effective
form of therapy for patients with treatment-resistant symptoms.
Another option to consider, with less supporting evidence,
is transcranial magnetic stimulation.
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) may be an option for patients who
have not responded to at least four adequate trials of antidepressant
treatment, including ECT.
