What is ‘on-label’ versus ‘off-label’. What does this mean?
While some of the TMS treatments are safe and efficacious, the FDA has labeled only ‘drug-resistant’ depression as ‘on-label’. Other conditions are considered ‘off-label’. Treatments are considered ‘on-label’ when the FDA approves treatment of a specific diagnosis. ‘Off-label’ indication by FDA means that the particular diagnosis in question has not been officially established by the FDA for treatment. For example, even though aspirin is used ‘off-label’ for treatment of many disorders such as heart disease, aspirin is not in fact officially approved as ‘on-label’ for treating heart disease despite its safety and efficacy.
All treatments follow specific well-studied protocol and have extensive clinical research proving safety and efficacy.
