Wrong question: Medication may not be the answer. Anxiety can be helped by meds but first try a therapist who specializes in treating anxiety. Some people find Overeaters Anonymous helpful for binge eating. Finding things you can do to deal with the way you feel may be more effective than just looking for the right medication. I'm not saying that meds won't help but meds alone are often not a total solution.
