Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: We read the letter of Donoghue and Haddad with great interest. We agree entirely that their data support the need for education about discontinuation phenomena and indeed other aspects of psychotropic drugs to be extended to pharmacists and other key health professionals. In addition, we feel that it would be useful to consider increasing the amount of information made available to patients directly. A noteworthy point is that discontinuation phenomena may exist with other classes of psychotropic drugs and that such educational initiatives should not be confined only to antidepressants.
