  1. I'm a normal/healthy weight so losing weight or gaining weight or numbers on a scale isn't my main priority. It's mainly about how I feel and how much my eating disorder is affecting my life. For example, about 9 years ago, I would binge and purge up to 10 times per day. Currently my only problem is that only sometimes (maybe a few meals a week) I overeat a little bit. Not like a full on binge, and not so much that my stomach feels like it's going to burst, but just enough that I'm unhappy with myself and I don't feel in control. It's not like what my old binges used to be, but it's more than what I eat in a normal meal. I don't know if I'm explaining this thoroughly, or if I just sound like a crazy eating disordered whack job, but eh.... I'm not fond of topamax or zonegran because of the side effects: not being able to focus or learn, feeling/sounding stupid, not being able to sweat and overheating (& I live in FL), hair loss, acne, the random outburst in tears, etc.... I'm actually considering taking topamax out of the equation just because it does have so many terrible side effects for what little benefit it provides. I actually think that the naltrexone has provided the biggest benefit for me. I'm not sure why....
  2. I just started ( yesterday) taking it only at night. I was afraid that it wouldn't last through the day if I only took it at night (the naltrexone). I take 100mg.
  3. Yes!!! I recently started taking it and noticed that it helped a LOT, but my issue with naltrexone is that it makes me SOOOO sleepy. It is awesome, don't get me wrong, but I just feel like sleeping 24/7. Do you have this issue? Or if you do, what do you do to deal with it? Because I really want to stay on naltrexone, I just need ways of coping with the sleepiness. I've found that topamax and naltrexone together are the best combo so far, I'm just so sleepy! (I take the topamax at night).
  4. What medications have you found that have worked for binge eating disorder or bulimia? Topamax kinda helps, but I hate the side effects (depression, hair loss, slowed thinking, tiredness, etc....) and was wondering if anybody else had success with any other medications. Or if you've found ways to deal with the cognitive side effects of topamax? Thank you.
