In brief: Side effects
A short list would be rupture of the esphagus from induced vomitting, low potassium from vomiting and weakening of the tooth enamel from the stomach acid.
There are more, the most serious is death. Psychological risks are a worsening of the condition and not treating co-morbid depression and anxiety. A more complete list requires professional consultation.
