The work reported in this article was done in the absence of any conflict of interest or pharmaceutical industry support. After the paper was submitted for publication in PLoS Medicine, I accepted to consult with Eli Lilly the manufacturer of fluoxetine. This has been a minor, occasional role, with very limited compensation. Such a relationship did not exist or was planned when the work was done and the article was written and submitted and it is being disclosed here in the interests of transparency.
