In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Dis orders (DSM-IV; APA, 1994), bulimia nervosa (BN) is classified as an eating disorder. The disease is characterized by discrete periods of binge eating dur ing which, large amounts of food are consumed and a sense of control over eating is absent, followed by differing types of purging behaviour to prevent weight gain. Since the first descriptions of the diag nosis, little is known about the aetiological back ground of the disease. BN is accompanied by, or due to, alterations of serotonin and/or norepinephrine activity. These changes may possibly be involved in the pathological eating behaviour and in causing associated depression.
