As I understand it, as long as you have the risk estimates and standard errors, meta is suitable. It will also give the forest plot. Funnel plots to assess publication bias, with either Begg's or Egger's style graphs, can be gotten with metabias. And finally, if you have heterogeneity to explore, metareg is the way to go.

I just completed my own meta-analysis using these programs. I hope that they are similarly useful to you.

I have 16 test-retest studies from which have been calculated the
before-after difference in Cronbach's Alpha for multi-item scales. The
standard error of the difference in Alpha has been estimated using the
bootstrap. I now wish to conduct a meta-analysis of these studies. Can
anyone suggest a suitable Stata user-written program for doing this? Would
Meta be appropriate? Thanks in advance,
