  1. Hello. I can't remember a time when food wasn't THE main focus in my life. Even when I'm so full and can't eat another bite...my thoughts wander to what else I'll eat later. Diets, eating plans, Weight Watchers Summer Camps, gastric bypass, journaling what I eat and/or exercising will START to give results the first few weeks and then my body just basically says "F you" and shuts down. No more weight loss. If I can't get the gratification of weekly seeing measurable change in my efforts...I'm right back to food. Overeating has ruined my life. Whoever I COULD have been when I start
  2. My pdoc and I have finally found something that works for my impulsivity/compulsivity (mainly impulse buying, which I've always had an issue with, but may or may not have been exacerbated by Abilify) and my binge eating: Memantine (Namenda). For those who haven't heard of this medicine, it's an Alzheimer's disease medicine, but it is gaining use in psychiatry for many off-label uses, including binge eating, impulse control disorders, ADHD, etc. After I was prescribed Abilify almost a year ago, I started piling up some serious credit card debt because I was impulse buying, and soon both my
  3. Hello all, I am currently trying to figure out how to best put a stop to my compulsive/binge eating. I am doing my best to explore potentially useful medications, and had a question for all of you. Have any of you tried zonisamide (zonegran) for these issues? I know that topiramate has a much wider user base, but zonisamide seems to be better tolerated than topiramate does. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find many testimonies online in regards to its use to help curb overeating. I am currently taking 50 mg naltrexone, and it has largely lost its effects, so I am searching for an a
  4. Hello all, This is my first post on this website. I'm posting because I have a few questions regarding compulsive/binge eating and naltrexone. First off, a little background on me. I have a pretty long history with eating disorders; I was diagnosed with anorexia when I was thirteen, and I am now twenty. In this time I have been all over the spectrum, from anorexia to bulimia to binge eating and back again. I'm so exhausted of all of this, and I just want to move on with my life. Anyway, my latest "cycle" has been in the form of compulsive/binge eating and some purging (although not very o
  5. 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.
  6. I have binged as far as I can remember, eating in secret all type of food that was "not allowed", just because I could at that instant. If it was then needed to have two dinners, I did for nobosy to notice. Then I moved to eat as much as I could when I was alone. Finally, in the unciversity I crashed, and I got topiramate and fluoxetine for my anxiety and depresion. After that I got better, but I gained 30 kg that I haven't been able to lose (200 pounds, 5" height). Now I am in treatment again with lamictal, and waiting for therapy for the binge eating. i have got the different steps to s
  7. I suffered from bulimia from 2011-14, and along with weightloss it caused all sorts of physical problems. I eventually recovered, but the binge eating kind of stayed in the background until this year, when it exploded. I've gained so much weight it's ridiculous. None of my clothes fit and I can tell my family is embarrassed, and I have no friends in this city. It's costing me, both emotionally and financially, a phenomenal amount. I keep promising myself I'll stop but never being able to. I feel like a drug addict sometimes. Who is the best person to speak to about this sort of th
  8. What frustrates me is that binge eating is never taken seriously by the Mental Health System. As a child I was morbidly obese and it was never taken seriously by doctors. I was always eating, mostly as a coping mechanism. I remember I was constantly checking the fridge for food, even after dinner. I just never stopped eating. I gained so much weight that it took me 6 years to lose it. The only thing doctors did, was tell my mom that I needed to eat vegetables.... and they also gave me a voucher for the gym which didn't help economically much either. It took my Mom installing a lock in th
  9. hi everyone. i'm new and not sure if i'm in the right place. i have dealt with an eating disorder for about a year and a half now. i lost a lot of weight, then gained it back, and then some. i was overweight in high school and lost a lot of weight without trying my freshman year of college due to ptsd. (fun times!) i got a lot of praise for that, from my parents, old friends, etc. it felt so good to go home and hear people say "wow, you're SO tiny" and now... i'm not as big as i was in high school, but significantly bigger than i was this summer. i'm so scared to go home in a month, to hav
  10. Hello everyone I am desperate need of some advice. I suffer from social anxiety, panic, GAD, depression and binge eating/emotional eating. I was on Effexor XR x75mg for about 7 years. I was fine until about year 4 of use when it started to cause extreme teeth grinding and clenching out of no where. I tried switching medications to Pristiq.. still grinded/clenched... tried switching to Cymbalta.. grinding and clenching continued. I also added BuSpar into the mix.. did not help. I went off of my meds for about 4 months and the grinding and clenching all but went away. However the severe
  11. I'm a person who has used Naltrexone as per the Sinclair Method (1 x 50mg 1 hour before drinking alcohol) to beat my destructive drinking and save my life. Now I no longer drink alcoholically the old binge, comfort eating and bulimia has come to the fore. I've always had a tendency to over eat but I can be so controlled at other times. I'm also an athlete but do have a proper nutrition plan which I do stick to however when I let loose I really let loose. This is affecting my confidence, my work and my sport. I am really fed up and want to change. Since I already have a Naltrexone prescript
  12. I feel like I've improved so much over the past couple years and the only thing that remains constantly out of control is binge eating. I feel so shameful about it and about my body and the weight gain I've experienced. I don't even want to be seen by other people. I've gained nearly a hundred pounds. Can anyone relate? Anybody have any tips? I just want to eat normally. I don't remember the last time I enjoyed something I ate, and I've done the "mindful eating" stuff and it just doesn't do anything for me. I feel fuller faster but that doesn't help because I associate that "full" feeling
  13. Hey everyone. I am a diagnosed bulimic and I have major issues with binge eating. For my 5'4" frame, being over 160 lbs is torture due to my anorexic past of being underweight. Anyways, I realized I couldn't live like this anymore and just started doing the day intensive treatment program at the Renfrew Center in the US. Has anyone been to an ED treatment center? Did it help? I'm having issues sticking to my meal plan and not binging horribly at night, mainly due to my fear of going to bed on an empty stomach and insomnia-like tendencies. Anyways I started mid-week last week and woul
  14. I have been a binge eater since I was a child and have found that most of my behaviors manifest themselves at night. Don't get me wrong, I can certainly binge eat during the day, but I definitely have much less control at night. I eat dinner and after that I can't stop obsessing about food and eating nonstop. Eating everything in the house and going out to the nearest store to pick up a ton of food and binge on that all night long. Doesn't matter how much conviction I have during the day to lessen my bingeing at night- I do it anyway. I am seriously out of control. feel like I have read every
  15. I've been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and binge-eating disorder, and I'm 99 percent sure I'm suffering from comorbid depression. I have been seeing a therapist on and off for the past few years, but I'm currently living and working in a very remote area, and my options are *extremely* limited (the best I can do is a marriage counselor and an LBGT therapist who specializes in addictions, and neither of them accept my insurance). I feel absolutely out of control and helpless. I have two months' worth of Wellbutrin that I've considered taking to help me with the depression, but
  16. Okay, so.. My crazyboards blog title here used to be 'happiness is a warm pizza.' Now, I don't agree with that. Lots of things have happened to make me realize what kind of problem I have. When I was visiting my girlfriend, I was disappointed when we didn't eat as much as we could have. I stole a slice of pizza from her when her grandmother said it was okay, even though she didn't get to eat much of it at all. We went to a sushi bar, and I was pouting-- pouting-- when she told me to put a little plate back because we reached our 20 dollar budget. My whole life has revolved around food
