A lot is going on.  Does your doctor know you are taking laxatives?  If not, please let your doctor know.  Also, let your doctor know your symptoms:  taking laxatives after you eat; rapid weight loss has caused you to want to lose weight lower than is healthy for your height; drive for thinness; desperate measures to lose more weight; and anything else you can list for him or her.  Seek out an eating disorder specialist in your area to be evaluated for an eating disorder.  Visit the bella vita website to take our eating disorder survey, learn more about eating disorders and treatment options.  Wishing you the best, Patricia Pitts, PhD  The Bella Vita  Los Angeles, CA
