Thirteen women with anorexia nervosa, binge-eating/purging type (AN-BP), 17-43 years old, were treated with a 4-month course of combined cognitive-behavioral, nutritional and antidepressant therapy (7 with amineptine and 6 with fluoxetine). Patients were monitored before and after 1, 2 and 4 months of treatment for body mass index (BMI), for eating disorder symptoms by the Eating Disorder Inventory (EDI) and the Bulimic Investigation Test (BITE) and for depression and anxiety by the Hamilton Rating Scales for Depression and for Anxiety. BMI, EDI scores, depression and anxiety improved significantly and equally in the two groups during the 4 months of therapy, while BITE scores did not change.
