Does treatment for depression also help with bulimia?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Talk therapy - yes

I can't imagine a talk therapist that wouldn't work with you on both issues.
I also don't know of any depression medication that would have an impact on bulimia patterns. It might be possible that with the depression relieved, the pattern of bulimia might decrease on its own, but i think cbt would be the best way to learn how to change those behaviors.
