Most importantly, you need to get yourself better and try to start looking at the world and living as being wonderful. Sometimes, we can't do that without a little bit of help from antidepressants. I've been on Zoloft for quite some time and I have read that it has made some people gain weight and some people lose. Well, I've lost quite a bit of weight on it and its worked wonderful for me. As for Paxil...I gained 10 lbs. quickly. Everyone's body is different and reacts to drugs differently. Also, another you can talk to your doctor about is trying Welbutrin. I was on that at one time, but it didn't go over well with my anxiety, but I have a friends who was worried about gaining weight, so he also put her on Welbutrin, which is also an antidepressent but kind of helps to suppress the appetite.
Right now, just go to the doctor and talk with him. Let him know about how you feel and your once before eating disorder. Thats what they're there for. Also, stay with this board. It has helped me tremendously!
Hope this helped some.
