Am Fam Physician. 2016 Aug 1;94(3):189.

Incorrect Drug Classification/SORT rating. The article “Sexual Dysfunction in Women: A Practical Approach” (August 15, 2015, p. 281) contained an error in Table 2 (p. 283), which incorrectly identified trazodone and venlafaxine as examples of monoamine oxidase inhibitors. Trazodone, venlafaxine, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors should have all been listed under the heading Psychotropics. Also, the sixth recommendation in the SORT table (p. 287), “Directed masturbation is recommended for lifelong anorgasmia,” should have received an A rating (consistent, good-quality patient-oriented evidence) rather than a C rating (consensus, disease-oriented evidence, usual practice, expert opinion, or case series). The online version of this article has been corrected.
