> AD's do indeed slow metabolism and often stimulate appetite. That is what sometimes makes them a valuable medication for Anorexics. I had a young anorexic friend who also suffered extreme anxiety and panic. Paxil was the drug she was given and she began gaining weight. Her panic and anxiety were well controlled and she looked much better but she then couldn't stand the weight gain and quit the medication. Now she is back to her own shaking, quaking self and losing the weight. The anorexia won.

I am so sorry for your friend's experience. I knew a few girls at my old job that were anorexic and it's a powerful disease. Sometimes depression is more powerful but sometimes it isn't. Your friend must be going through hell and you right along with her. Do you find it difficult to be with him/her when you are having your own troubles? I only ask because being with these girls at work always made me more depressed because I wanted to help them but knew I couldn't and it seemed to make them and me feel uncomfortable. Well, I wish you strength and courage and I wish your friend hope and love. Take care of yourself.
