To the Editor: Keks et al make a number of important points about the place of combination antidepressant strategies in the pharmacotherapy of depression.1 However, it is important for readers to note that the vigorous repudiation of combination treatments is a peculiarly Australian preoccupation. Our colleagues in Europe and North America are not nearly so troubled.
