Treatment Study

An NIMH-Funded study on Bulimia Nervosa is being conducted at the Cornell Medical Center – Westchester Division. The purpose of the study is to compare to sequential arms of treatment for efficacy and cost effectiveness. In one arm of treatment the participant begins with a guided self-help manual and if she has not ceased bingeing and purging at the end of this program she is then offered medication. If she does not respond to medication she will then receive the state of the art cognitive behavioral therapy. In the other arm of treatment the participant begins with the state of the art cognitive behavioral therapy. If she does not respond she is then offered fluoxetine. In both treatment programs the participant is followed for 1 year. The treatment is free and the therapy is conducted by experienced eating disorder therapists.
