Abstract

The effectiveness of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in the treatment of unipolar and bipolar major depressive episodes (MDE) is well known, and the US Food and Drug Administration has recently reclassified ECT devices to a less restrictive category for treatment of MDE and catatonia. In this review, we look at the existing evidence supporting the use of ECT in conditions other than MDE, such as bipolar mania and mixed states, schizophrenia, catatonia, Parkinson’s disease, agitation in dementia, and status epilepticus.
