I am currently:

I’ve never had ECT but I have witnessed a clinic on placement and it was nowhere near what I thought it would be like- it was so much more relaxed and peaceful. Patients had the sedative and were unconscious and during the treatment they twitched a little, mainly toes curling or fingers twitching. They then moved to recovery and within quarter of an hour they were awake, although very sleepy. They seemed to be quite sleepy for a day or so and complained of headache which was managed with otc style pain relief. Most seemed to have 10-12 sessions. Most people seem to have it for depression though from what I’ve seen but I know recently it’s been shown to be effective for psychosis and even PD type diagnoses.
