Oh Helmi I'm soooo sorry!!!

Effexor is the last drug you should have been prescribed for Anorexia. I remember reading that Anorexia is sometimes a SIDE AFFECT of the Effexor. Although it does tend to put weight onto some of us less fortunate souls(40 lbs for me), it apparently has the opposite affect on others. I hate to say it, but your doc really should have known that.

My first suggestion would be to change doctors.

Helmi, my own success story with eating disorders and Effexor, is that I was able to conquer my own battle with bullimia with the combination of Effexor and counseling. The Effexor (although full of nasty side affects) gave me a "who cares" type of attitude, long enough to stop worrying so much about my appearance. But it was the counseling that really did it. It helped me to realize that the damage I was doing to my body, was far worse than not being perfect. Most importantly it helped me get to the root of WHY I felt that incescant need to be perfect. The bottom line was that I had to choose between imperfection and life.... or perfection and death.
