Got over my eating disorder about 6 months ago (as in finally settled into a normal eating pattern). Since taking citalopram (10g) have begun to worry about my weight again/ binge eat and then feel really guilty. Has anyone had this experience/ have any advice?
Not sure why you started taking Citalopram if your eating disorder was under control?
When starting an antidepressant your symptoms can became worst before better. In your case it may not be a good idea to do this. It can start the cycle of binge eating. Guilt only increased the feeling of wanting to eat to sooth your emotional pain.
This is not a good combination.You probably worked hard at getting your disorder under control. You may want to have an honest talk with your doctor about what is happening.
