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 additional medication to see if it might help. Anyway, any feedback is greatly appreciated!
Hi hi My name is Mary and I'm a compulsive eater full of anxiety over food and eating in public. I'm the largest I've ever been since giving birth to my third child in October of 2012 (203 lbs) Feeling extremely self concious in my skin and my clothes Ashamed to be seen in public or have pictures taken of me. This doubles up with depression, so when I'm on the down cycle I start to binge on anything made of white carbs- which only perpetuates both problems. Oh, and my mother feeds these anxieties by commenting on my weight, my figure, my clothing, what I'm eating or not eating, and how much exercise I'm getting or not getting (it's been this way nearly my entire life) Its (not) awesome Good to be here I'd love to find some support -Mary
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 book out there, tried every therapy, etc etc. Nothing has helped. Scared to death. Just wondering if anyone else finds nighttime more difficult in terms of compulsive eating/food obsessions?
