Hi the medication is approved for ADD and impulse control/executive function. 2 GPs I spoke to had no idea. Suggest you print out info re FDA approval and take to your Dr. IF you have impulse issues and a compulsion to eat it is excellent. Yes hunger is lessened however the medication tends to assist with making decisions - giving you a chance to stop think and select to not eat or to eat and then what food. I have found urge and thinking about eating when I am not hungry has REALLY improved on this medication. Good Luck.
