Electrical Stimulation Works as Add-On in Bipolar Depression

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a safe and effective add-on therapy for type I or II bipolar depression, researchers found.

In an intention-to-treat analysis of 52 patients in the randomized, double-blind, Bipolar Depression Electrical Treatment Trial (BETTER), active tDCS had significantly greater antidepressive effects than a sham procedure (differential effect size of −1.68 with a number needed to treat of 5.8,  565 more words
