In brief: Seizure

Both anorexics and bulimics can have electrolyte (salt) abnormalities which can make you more likely to have a seizure.
Buproprion + electrolyte abnormality = increased likelihood of seizure. In addition, buproprion suppress appetite a little bit. If you have anorexia, you shouldn't take anything that would suppress your appetite since you already are not eating enough. I.
