Letter to the Editor

Sir: There is little doubt that it makes sense and is right for readers of The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry (JCP) or for that matter, any journal, to be aware that a journal supplement is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from the pharmaceutical industry. I take no issue with this recommendation and heartily endorse it.

However, I do take issue with several of the other comments made by Jefferson, Greist, and Katzelnick in the space above. In particular, I take strong exception to the implication that my article published in JCP was influenced by a pharmaceutical sponsor. This is simply not the case, and frankly I am surprised that such experienced psychopharmacologists as Jefferson and Greist would take such a position.
