Hello Ana,
Yes, it is most concerning that you even started taking stimulants to suppress your appetite. They are highly addictive. As for the laxatives, that are also extremely dangerous to be using for the purpose you are using them. You stand the risk of seriously dehydrating yourself. This can be fatal. You really need to start the process by visiting your house doctor and explaining your past decade problems. You are seriously abusing yourself.
