It may: Many of the eating disorders are accompanied by underlying stress and depression, so medications can be helpful. It is so important to seek the help of a good psychiatrist and therapist who are educated and trained in the eating disorders, as with both medications and counseling, you can do well. Best wishes.

Medicine Helps: Medicine, especially ssris, can be very helpful. They have been used many years as an assistant to psychotherapy. Primary treatment still remains the use of psychotherapy with a knowledgeable person experienced in the field of eating disorders.
