Drugs like dexadrine would be contraindicated for eating disorders because they do decrease appetite. The idea with eating disorders is to treat the causes, not the symptoms. Another reason is that someone with an eating disorder is likely to have a distorted idea of what successful treatment consists of. For example, you think that decreasing your appetite would be good. I think reducing my weight would be good. Both are distorted. In your case, it would be good to remove the reasons that you eat that have nothing to do with hunger. In my case, successful treatment would mean that I didn't equate self-starvation with self-worth, or thinness with worthiness.

Make sense?
