Thank you for your question and welcome to


I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.


I am not aware of any medication for anxiety that would also help you lose weight. Some antidepressant medication can cause weight gain. There are a few articles on that address this:


When Your Antidepressant Makes You Gain Weight


Weight Gain and Antidepressants


I hope this helps.
