That depends: On whether you have associated MEDICAL ISSUES that require medication. In rare cases eating disorders have a purely medical or neurological basis. Most of the time these are psychiatric types of issues which can be approached with or without medication. Need a good clean diagnosis first by a trained expert. Search out a good psychologist/psychiatrist for guidance and help.
