Abstract

Bulimia nervosa (BN) is an eating disorder, primarily afflicting young women, which can be successfully treated. The two most intensively researched treatments for BN have been antidepressant medication and cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT). Controlled studies of the separate and combined effects of these methods are critically reviewed, and the theoretical and clinical implications of their findings discussed.
