Links Between Depression and Anorexia?

Q: I am single father dealing with a daughter who is anorexic. The doctors are prescribing anti-depressants to help remedy the condition but my daughter is hardly depressed. What's the logic?


 

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder that involves a major disturbance in the way a person deals with food, weight and body image. One of the main features in anorexia is a strict limitation of food. It it is seen much more frequently in girls and women than in men.

When treating anorexia, a number of options are available. Studies show that a multi-faceted approach may be more effective. Psychiatric, nutritional and behavioral counseling combined with medication may be recommended. The use of anti-depressants is a common practice because eating disorders often involve other emotional issues that can be effectively dealt with via these medications.

I would recommend speaking with your physician to discuss your daughter's treatment plan in depth. And don't hesitate to voice your questions and concerns.
