Neurostar Safety

Clinical trials have demonstrated the safety of NeuroStar Advanced Therapy® in treating patients who have had an inadequate response to prior antidepressant medications.

Treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy caused very few side effects and was generally well tolerated by patients. The most common side effect reported during clinical trials was scalp discomfort—generally mild to moderate and occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment.

Fewer than 5% of patients discontinued treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS due to adverse events.

Over 10,000 active treatments were performed across all NeuroStar® clinical trials demonstrating its safety1
