An error occurred in this Clinical Review by Alistair Burns and Steve Iliffe (BMJ 2009;338:b158, doi:10.1136/bmj.b158). In the Treatment section, under the Pharmacotherapy subsection, the article stated that “all three cholinesterase inhibitors are available in patch form.” This statement is wrong: only rivastigmine is available in patch form. As the BMJ follows the BNF’s style for drug names we should also have referred to cholinesterase inhibitors as acetylcholinesterase inhibitors.
