In table 4 of this paper by David Baldwin and colleagues (BMJ 2011:342:d1199, doi:10.1136/bmj.d1199) there are two errors. The odds ratio (95% confidence interval) should be 5.26 (2.50 to 11.11) for lorazepam versus placebo [not 2.26 (2.5 to 11.11)] and 2.51 (1.50 to 4.19) for paroxetine versus placebo [not 5.26 (2.50 to 11.11)]. Both odds ratios are significant at P<0.05. The corrected results do not affect the direction or significance of the results that were originally stated.
