    My doctor prescribes this medication for me when I described my eating behavior to be similar to drug craving and drug seeking behaviors. The medication has made it easier for me to identify being hungry or just wanting to eat to stuff an emotion. I have taken it for over 1 year and have lost 25 lbs.
