PIMOZIDE was given to 14 pat. with anorexia nervosa and 21 pat. with bulimia nervosa The drug evaluated positively some symptoms of eating disorders. Most significantly it improved the bulimic episodes and purging. The accompanying psychiatric symptomatology (depression and anxiety) was mostly not improved. We conclude that Pimozide may be a useful medication in the therapy of basic symptoms (bulimia, purging) in bulimic forms of eating disorders.
