The purpose of this research study is to gather information about the effects of Lisdexamfetamine treatment on brain function in Binge Eating Disorder (BED) patients undergoing 12 weeks of open-label treatment. To do so, we will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to examine brain structure and function. Lisdexamfetamine is the only medication approved by United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for BED.By completing this study we hope to better understand who benefits from treatment and why they do or do not respond to medications.
