Abstract

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a severe and complex psychiatric disorder and no medication has been approved for its treatment. This case series in youth with severe, recurrent AN supports the hypothesis that dopamine receptor agonists could be helpful in supporting fear extinction during eating disorder focused psychotherapy and therefore support recovery from AN. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
