> I think I remember my previous pdoc telling me that Wellbutrin is also contraindicated in people with eating disorders because of reports of seizures in people taking it who are anorexic or bulimic.

Noa,
Thank you for writing... I've heard that about wellbutrin too, although it may be more of a liability issue than anything with Glaxo. Since you can never tell, I guess it's better to be safe... I'm wondering whether she will tell this new doc, though, about her eating disorder or, former eating disorder. It's hard to tell whether she has recovered from it or not, or whether something like that just goes into remission for a while, and then returns. If it's too personal, don't even answer, but do you have a history of eating disorders, or someone you know? I've always worried about my sister for as long as I've known about it... It's hard to see the irrationality, like her looking into the mirror - she sees someone with too much weight on her thighs. And she's skinnier than anybody I know...

Anyway, thanks again, and take care,

Wendy
