Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

Tenormin is atenolol a beta blocker.
It is used in arrhythmia and tachycardia to lower the heart rate.
It is also used in anxiety to relieve anxiety symptoms of tachycardia.
It is not specifically used in bulimia.
It can be used in cases of bulimia accompanied by anxiety to relieve anxiety symptoms.
It can be used in a 21 years old female with anxiety and tachycardia to lower heart rate, improve anxiety and improve bulimia.

Hope I have answered the question.
