i have psychotic depression, which is similar to schizoaffective disorder. ect has absolutely saved my life a couple of times. the first time i had it, it was done bilaterally with a heavy pulse and i had terrible retrograde amnesia, deja vu and couldnt even remember how to do simple tasks, but the depresssion was gone, and the psychosis, for at least a little while. the most recent time i had it, i had modified bilateral and had a much better time with it. still lost big chunks of memory, but not important stuff, and much less memory loss than the last time. and after this most recent treatment i've actually been in remission for a while!!!!

from what i've read, it's never been successful with schizophrenia, unless the person is severely catatonic it sometimes helps. but for severe depression with psychoses it is an absolute blessing and the best thing that has EVER worked for me in 16 years of treatment. please please please don't write another book about how "barbaric" ect is......NOT giving ECT to a seriously suicidal and psychotic person is what's barbaric.
