  • Anorexia nervosa, more common in females, is characterized by low body weight due to restricted intake of food, and fear to gain weight as well as distorted body image of oneself. It has a number of medical complications, such as low heart rate, hypotension, etc. These complications need consideration before starting medication for anorexia nervosa. Although, antidepressants have shown no more effectiveness as compared to placebo according to a research.
