To the Editor: In an ironic clinician–academic dichotomy, in the same month that the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists published a survey showing that 79% of Australian psychiatrists combine antidepressants and 75% of psychiatrists believe that general practitioners should be given information on this topic,1 Keks et al chose a non-psychiatric journal to “mandate that combinations be used as a last resort, and only in specialist settings”.2
