Error in Letter to the Editor

JAMA. 2021;326(9):873. doi:10.1001/jama.2021.12604

In the Letter to the Editor titled “Risks and Benefits of Benzodiazepines,” published in the June 1, 2021, issue of JAMA,1 the statement “Similar to the loss of analgesic effects of opioids over time, the anxiolytic effects provided by benzodiazepines disappear within weeks” did not accurately reflect the findings of the reference it cited, and the statement and reference have been removed. This article was corrected online.
