Can someone tell me between zoloft, (sertraline) Prozac and celexa which one treats depression and OCD better? And which one will not cause weight gain the best.

Medications: That is not how medicine works. They all are very effective and used for a variety of different reasons. The best drug for you is the issue and that is determined with the physician working with you in person.

I completely agree with Dr. Killian & would just add that the best drug for you is always the one that works for you. Psychotropic medications respond differently to each individual. Feel better & good luck!
