Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

At 3 months, fluoxetine alone is about as effective as the combination of fluoxetine and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and either is more efficacious than CBT alone. However, by 9 months, these differences disappear and all 3 treatments appear equivalent (SOR: B, RCT with follow-up study).
