In the Clinical Crossroads article entitled “Assessment and Lifestyle Management of Patients With Obesity: Clinical Recommendations From Systematic Reviews,” published in the September 3, 2014, issue of JAMA (2014;312[9]:943-952. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.10432), several errors occurred. On page 944, in the third paragraph of the left column, the second sentence should have read “Her only medication is paroxetine, 50 mg/d.” On page 945, the second-to-last sentence of the second paragraph under “Taking an Obesity-Focused History” also should have stated that Ms T is taking paroxetine, not fluoxetine. On page 950, in the paragraph under “Recommendations for Ms T,” the third sentence should have stated that Ms T should try to accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderately vigorous physical activity on a weekly basis [not a daily basis] and discuss with her physician the substitution of paroxetine [not fluoxetine] with an alternative antidepressant. This article was corrected online.
