Letter to the Editor
Sir: Although Dr. Dunner’s recent contribution to the Journal was most useful, I hasten to point out an obvious error. On page 79, the article asserts: “The use of thiazide diuretics is the equivalent of lowering [italics mine] the lithium dose.” The reference provided, of course, states just the opposite.
