    I take methylphenidate for my adhd (which I see you also have) and I found it had helped a lot with my bingeing. I stopped taking it during winter break and immediately went back to bingeing

    Same! I dont purge (i have no gag reflex and laxatives never seemed to be enticing) but i also feel that taking methylphenidate has helped with my binging. For me though, its just mindless eating when i'm upset, kind of a control thing ig. So the methylphenidate helps me process my actions before i impulsively eat yk

    Something that's been really helpful for me is Metformin! My psychiatrist prescribed it prior to my diabetes diagnosis for assistance with binging and/or restricting. It does a good job of making you more full faster, while keeping any food cravings virtually nonexistent. I was prescribed it for my diabetes as well, but that's not the only use:)!
