Bulimia is a serious disease affecting mostly young women but present in other populations as well. Current accepted Bulimia treatments often consist of some combination of anti-depressants (SSRI's and others) with and without modifications or psychotherapy. If current treatments are successful, patients will stop inducing vomiting to control weight and should feel better about themselves. Unfortunately, this Bulimia treatment often results in patients gaining weight and having obesity related complications later in life.
Recent reports have demonstrated that medications to control appetite improve binge eating and bulimia. The Bulimia treatment used at PBMD Weight Loss goes a step further. It has found that by controlling the drive to eat, most patients with bulimia will stop inducing vomiting and live a healthier life. There is a great emotional benefit as well since the patient feels in control of her or his eating. Thus bulimia can be reduced or eliminated almost immediately. The patient will not gain weight and may even lose a little, if overweight to start. Improved psychological well-being can be expected.
