Letter to the Editor
Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
To the Editor: In their Journal article published online ahead of print, Carpenter et al described a meta-analysis of the relationship between paroxetine treatment and emergent suicidality using data from 61 randomized controlled trials in adults. I am puzzled that, in their article, they chose to report risk estimates using odds ratios (ORs) rather than relative risks (RRs). The latter statistic is more easily understood and is generally preferred when randomized controlled trials data are available.
