Please NO WEIGHT
Hi, JC! The medications commonly used to treat OCD ~ the SSRI antidepressants and the antipsychotics all have the POTENTIAL for weight gain, but only a percentage of people taking them actually do.
There is an older drug, Anafranil, of the tricyclic class antidepressants that is commonly prescribed and effective for OCD that is much less apt to cause weight gain.
Here's a list for you: https://www.drugs.com/condition/obsessive-compulsive-disorder.html
