To the Editor: I read with interest the article by Moynihan and colleagues1 and commend the authors on their timely review of this important topic. While the article referred to research that had highlighted concerns about overdiagnosis in relation to several medical and surgical conditions, the only psychiatric condition mentioned was attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
