Hi, this is a good question. The medication for anxiety that the majority of my clients take for treatment of symptoms of anxiety with no reports of weight gain is Celexa. It is my preference for my clients with very few complaints of other side effects as well. I hope this helps you with your personal goals. Linda D., LMSW, CASAC
