Pica disorder
Hi doctor, I have eating disorder called pica. I eat slate pencils or raw rice. I am not able to fully control it. I stopped myself from eating those for some months but I kind of falling into that habit again. When I get stressed or anxiety I used to eat those. Those kind of relieved my stress. But I know its not healthy. Recently I am diagnosed with hypo thyroid, doctor suggested thyronorm and iron calcium tablets too as haemoglobin is 10. Are there any separate medication available for pica? Please advise.
