Cognitive behavior therapy vs. control conditions, other psychotherapies, pharmacotherapies and combined treatment for depression: a comprehensive meta‐analysis including 409 trials with 52,702 patients

CBT appears to be as effective as pharmacotherapies at the short term, but more effective at the longer term.
