The medication of antidepressants can decrease binging, purging in bulimia nervosa and the binge eating disorder; however, this is a self medication to use any antidepressant medicine to release the consciousness about bad body image. The interventions through cognitive or behavioral therapy can also reduce binging and purging, nevertheless, the behavioral therapy is more effectual as compare to medication.

Commonly question about Eating Disorder
Eating Disorder?I think I may have an eating disorder. In early february I was a Bulimic I stoped vomiting but I still coun t clories is that a sign of an EDO?
Counting calories is healthy as long as you allow your body enough nutrients to function properly. Don t deprive yourself of basic nutrients. Good luck!
Eating disorder?I ve restricted food in the past, exercised in the past and even binged and purged. I think for the most part I ve (with help) have gotten all that under control however I ve noticed that when I m stressed (even just a little) I often turn to food. Then feel god awful later when the stress has been resolved. Is this a form of an eating disorder also? Any suggestions to help alleviate or ideas were this stems from?
It may be scarey for you, but there s a fairly straight forward explanation to what s going on here.
In the past you have used various mechanisms to control your feelings. For example, at one stage you used to restrict to help you create a sense of control and to (maybe) cover up issues that were troubling you. Then you realsied that restricting was a bad thing , so you switched to excessive exercising . Guess what? You realsied that that too was bad, so you switched to binging & purging. All of these behaviours you have adopted are your ways of coping and they all provide you with lots of control. It takes a lot of effort to do any of the above and it gives you a *false* sense of control.
Now, you ve adopted an attitude to food, which you use to calm yourself down. ie. If I eat I ll cover up the bad feelings. Trouble is, the bad feelings are only covered up for about 30 minutes following eating - and then all the bad feelings come back to the surface.
What you have now is not an eating disorder per se. It s more a matter of a bad attitude towards food. You use food (now) to be a controller of feelings, just as in the past you used the lack of food to cover things up .
What you need to do is find appropraite ways of dealing with your feelings. Try not to eat when you arte feeling stressed, but maybe try relaxation exercises, listen to some calm music, read something humerous and then - only when the stress has passed should you eat something *just like other people do*. After all, you can tell yourself Other people feel good after eating - so I can also - I ve dealt with the stress and now it s time to join others in what most people consider to be a pleasant and enjoyable activity .
Eating disorder...?im pretty sure i have an eating disorder...well im positive. i recently moved and have come across massive amounts of stress in my life. when i first moved i became an alcoholic consuming mass amounts of alcohol every day...ive recently been able to control the binge drinking. i now come across these horrible bouts of eating a huge amount of food and sticking my finger down my throat minutes after im finished to rid myself of it. sometimes a little bit after wards when i feel horribly sick and sometimes repeat the process in the same night. i used to be thinner before i moved here and have battled anoerexia and bulemia in the past. i would love any kind of recommendations as to how and curb these horrible haibts....
I wish I had some really good advice. You seem to know it is the added stress in your life that is leading to your behaviors. You need to find some way to reduce the stress...whether that is seeking help from a therapist, taking up yoga, or some other activity. Bulimia is a hell of an illness to deal with on one s own, so I really suggest talking ot someone about it. If the stress continues, these behaviors will only escalate.
I have had an eating disorder for nineteen years...it s not something to take light-heartedly.
