\"i will need to take the medication for at least two weeks before i can see any benefit.\"-the correct answer is c: i will need to take the medication for at least two weeks before i can see any benefit.. theraputic drug effects may not be noticed for at least two weeks. therapy is usually prolonged and individual and family counseling are helpful in identifying and addressing issues such as self-esteem.eating disorders are serious behavior problems. they includeanorexia nervosa, in which you become too thin, but you dont eat enough because you think you are fat bulimia nervosa, involving periods of overeating followed by purging, sometimes through self-induced vomiting or using laxatives binge-eating, which is out-of-control eating women are more likely than men to have eating disorders. they usually start in the teenage years and often occur along with depression, anxiety disorders and substance abuse.hospital based care (including inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and/or residential care in an eating disorders specialty unit or facility) is necessary when an eating disorder has led to physical problems that may be life-threatening, or when it is associated with severe psychological or behavioral problems.
