WHAT ANTI-ANXIETY DRUG CAN I TAKE THAT WILL NOT CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN OR HEADACHES?
I have used both Zoloft and Tranxene for anxiety with no weight gain or headaches. You have to find what works for you though.
For me, Buspar, 15 mg, 3 x day, has been very helpful. No side effects that I can tell, and no weight gain, didn't increase headaches. I already had plenty.
Xanax made me too sleepy.
Something to ask about. Buspar (bu ((like you)) spar)
Brian, Health Central has a site devoted specifically to anxiety, and a long list of anti-anxiety drugs. Along with a question section and shareposts devoted to that condition.
Since the two, depression and anxiety are so often linked and share drugs, there is a two part article written by Merely Me on this site, discussing which antidepressants make you gain weight, Part One, and which are least likely to make you gain weight, Part Two.
The headache is often listed as a side effect for many of these drugs and may or may not occur. Hope this helps a bit.
