    Fantasizing about binging - HELP!

    ACK! I can't stop thinking about all of the food I haven't allowed myself to eat in the last few months. It's driving me mad. It's gotten to the point of mental preparation for a binge/purge. I work at home, and on Tuesday I will be here all day alone. I can't let this happen. I just wish I...

    Ranbaxy citalopram

    Good evening everyone. I'm sure there are many forum members using citalopram, as I have done, with some success.
