It’s generally indicated for depression, but there is emerging evidence that it may help with anxiety.
Anyone on here experimented with it for treating post withdrawal anxiety?

Not for treating anxiety, but many years ago i agreed to participate in a clinical research study as a “test subject” where i received transcranial magnetic stimulation. I realize that each stimulation paradigm can dial in whatever “strength” they want, but in my case it felt so powerful and dysphoric i would never do it again. it felt like sticking my finger in a light socket. they were unilaterally magnetically activating the region of my motor cortex that controls lower limb movement. Horrific experience, at last in my case.
I do have anxiety though and treat it through the use if CBT and mindful meditation, both of which have some positive effect.
