Owing to a processing error, the print and pdf versions of this Practice article by Jennifer Logue and colleagues (BMJ 2010;340:c154, doi:10.1136/bmj.c154) were not updated to take account of the withdrawal in Europe in January 2010 of sibutramine, formerly a drug used to treat obesity. In two places, therefore, these versions should say: “Consider orlistat” [not “Consider orlistat or sibutramine”]. Orlistat is now the only drug recommended in the treatment of obesity.
