Hi, I have been suffering from bulimia for 3 years. I am a healthy weight and do not want to gain weight. My psychiatrist has given me lovan to stop the bingeing and purging and obsessive thoughts. I am terrified of weight gain though and as I'm a healthy weight I do not need to gain weight at all. Will this medication cause weight gain?
Are you truly a healthy weight, or is the weight you think is healthy? It can help you gain weight, and you can stop it if it does. Don't forget weight isn't the only consideration. Purging frequently damages your teeth and esophagus. You can have your electrolytes out of balance.
