"That means that getting an implant alone was effective, and nearly as effective as having it turned on," says Angela Guarda, MD, director of the Eating Disorders Program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
"Substance abuse is a concern and is often linked with binge-eating disorder," says Guarda. "Vyvanse is a controlled substance with abuse potential."
Despite some positive weight loss results, says Guarda, Vyvanse is neither a weight-loss drug nor cure for obesity. "There is some concern that the direct-to-consumer marketing of this drug that's underway will result in patients asking for this medicine from physicians," she says.

Most women even those who are very thin do not have a thigh gap, says Angela Guarda, an associate professor of psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and director of the Johns Hopkins Eating Disorders Program. YouTube videos offer how-tos on achieving a thigh gap, and some self-proclaimed experts argue that there is a healthful way to achieve a thigh gap through exercise.
But eating disorder experts say that the quest is dangerous, noting that even many lean athletes do not have a thigh gap. Whether a womans inner thighs touch depends on bone structure, shape of the pelvic girdle and how far apart the hip bones are, in addition to weight, Guarda says. Most womens thighs touch somewhere from between their crotch and their knees, even at a healthful thin weight, she says.
The quest for a thigh gap could lead to a full-fledged eating disorder, Guarda says. For example, she says, an obsession with certain body areas can lead to body checking. People who do this pinch themselves often, on the stomach, thighs or elsewhere, or they use their fingers to measure their arms, wrists or thighs, and check their appearance in mirrors compulsively. Engaging in these bodychecking behaviours is likely to reinforce body dissatisfaction and negative body image, Guarda says.
