In Reply Network meta-analyses (NMAs) represent a new paradigm in mental health treatment research that have been seldom used and can be reliable and useful.1 Thus, we thank Roth et al and Feifel for their letters commenting on our NMA2 and bringing up some issues for discussion. It should be underscored that our NMA results regarding the efficacy and acceptability of high-frequency, low-frequency, and θ-burst stimulation and bilateral repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS)—which represent 95% of the included studies—are in line with previous pairwise meta-analyses findings.3-5
