Hi Everyone,
     I am interested to hear from anyone who has had ECT to help with their depression. I have a relative who is severely depressed and is now in hospital and is currently receiving Ect every second day now for almost 2 weeks, but I do not see any change as yet. eyes eyes eyes

I have not had ECT myself, but a friend of mine did and she is doing very well. It can take 15-20 treatments to work and then an antidepressant after that, but it often does work for severe depression. Sometimes it needs to be repeated again in the future.

Be patient and know your relative is in good hands.
