JAMA. 2011;305(9):875. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.213

Although the extent and quality of studies on therapies fortreating bulimia nervosa is low, the evidence that exists suggests that cognitive behavioral therapy may be more effective than antidepressant medications and supportive therapies in improving eating disorder symptoms in patients with the illness, a new report finds. The report, Bulimia Nervosa: Comparative Efficacy of Available Psychological and Pharmacological Treatments, was issued by the ECRI Institute, Plymouth Meeting, Pa (http://tinyurl.com/4j7oaog).
