I am trying to find something that will help with the binging and puring and help control the anxiety attacks I am having thinking about this ALL day. I would also like to know if there was any weight gain associated with this drug.
Prozac was approved back in 1987 when it came out for bulimia. It has been used successfully in many people for that disease. Usually people that take Prozac find it kind of stimulating so it is best taken in the AM if this applies to you. Because this is usually a stimulating drug, most people who take it find that it actually suppresses their appetite.. More people than not who take Prozac actually find that it increases their anxiety because of its stimulating properties. However, because it increases the availability of a neurotransmitter called serotonin it has the potential to work for anxiety. I would just work with your physician closely about any concerns and watch the anxiety closely. If you start experiencing increased anxiety, contact your physician immediately.
