Eating Disorders and Paxil

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad to be finally accepted into this community. I've been wanting to ask this for a long time:

Does anybody know if there is a connection between Paxil and eating disorders?

In March, I went on Paxil for mild depression and anxiety. I was anorexic for a few months before without knowing, but maybe a month after taking Paxil, I started to eat a lot of food without seeing the consequence of weight gain. I began binging and just recently began purging.

The psychiatrist that I saw said I need to get off Paxil in order to eradicate my eating disorder. I have gained 15-20 lbs on Paxil after being on it for 5.5 months.

Please let me know if you have any information!

Erin Pea
