Talk to your doctor: Low-dose topiramate may provide the feeling of satiety or fullness that you need to get this under control. It is certainly worth a try. Please discuss this with your treating physician. Also discuss with your therapist cognitive techniques that you can use to get this under control as well.

Anorexia: Sounds like your eating disorder is very active, but i don't know what treatment you're receiving for this. A good treatment team would include working with psychiatrist, psychologist and/or other therapist, nutritionists, and primary care physicians. Sometimes you may need inpatient treatment. Trying to do things all on your own may not be helpful over time. You can start w/primary care.
