Question: What if the Medicine Doesn't Work and Neither Does Therapy?
Answer: I understand you're worried that nothing will work, but take heart. The odds are in your favor. Even if the first med doesn't work, as you can see, there are many options available. It's just a matter of finding the right one. Even if none of these works, there are many new treatments in development as we speak. Among the newer treatments are Vagus Nerve Stimulation, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, and medications with novel modes of action.
