Do you typically do maintenance ECT?
It’s vanishingly rare in any unit I’ve worked in.

Only when other treatment options have failed and ECT is clearly effective. Now the most important part is other options have failed, that is:
1. TCA plasma level controlled, lithium addition and if that has failed an irreversible MAO inhibitor (tranylcipromine).
