How Do I Stop Binge Eating When I Am Depressed?? Any Medicine Out There To Stop It That Won't Cause Weight Gain

There is an ADHD medicine that has been known to help with Binge Eating Disorder and its called Vyvanse. However, I was on it and I didn't think it worked. What I did instead was start living in the moment. When I start to grab something I ask myself am I hungry, is this healthy for me, will it be worth the guilt? Then if I am hungry I do eat, but if not I replace it with another activity.

I just started taking Topamax for bipolar depression. It really curbs my appetite a lot and from what I read about it, it can be prescribed for binge eating. **Talk to your doctor** and read up on the side effects first! I got major anxiety and irritability. Had to take a low dose of another med to combat it, but everyone's different. Good luck 😃
