Hi - Am currently undergoing weekly ECT (electro-convulsive therapy - yes shock treatments). Have had multiple 70+ over the past several years. Am wondering if anyone has experienced some of the side effects I am such as mania and memory loss? I know memory loss is very common, but I have been taking both Aricept and Namenda (for memory loss) and am only in my early 40's and feel my memory is consistently getting worse. Anyone have any experience with ECT? PLEASE no bashing of ECT's - I know there are pro's and con's I just want some sharing of experiences. Thanks
