Cutler, MD, and colleagues in the April 2009 issue (J Clin Psychiatry 2009;70[4]:526-539), an error was made in the exclusion criteria. The text "if the current episode was associated with psychotic features" should be deleted in the second paragraph of the subsection "Patient Population" (p 527) in the Method.
