Tandospirone, a 5-HT1A partial agonist is effective in treating anorexia nervosa:
a case series
This case report details the therapeutic effects of tandospirone on two patients
with anorexia nervosa, one with the restricting subtype (ANR), and another with
the binge-eating/purging subtype (ANBP). A 22-year-old female patient with ANR
and a 23-year-old female patient with ANBP were treated successfully with the
5-HT1A partial agonist tandospirone. After treatment, not only did both patients
gain weight, they also showed improved scores on the Eating Disorder Examination
Questionnaire. In addition, a 6-month follow-up showed maintenance of these
effects. In this disorder, tandospirone may be an effective drug for long-term
use with good patient compliance. (Source: Annals of General Psychiatry)
