Dear Professor Bass,

I wrote to you two months ago in connection with the EMEA review of possible withdrawal and dependence-related problems with SSRI antidepressants, but have received no acknowledgement nor response. I would be pleased to hear from you, to learn of any progress made and, in particular, to establish [a] which experts have been appointed to conduct this review, and whether they propose to publish the full evidence on which their recommendations will be based; and [b] whether there is any proposed completion date for this review?  Many thanks for your attention; I shall look forward to hearing from you

Yours sincerely,

Charles Medawar
