Brief Answer:
Yes there are

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

I like to inform you that prozac and wellbutrin are weight neutral antidepressants and can be preferred in individuals who are at risk of weight gain. In fact wellbutrin helps in shedding some weight.

Regarding prescription I like to make it clear that online prescription is illegal and against medical ethics. Considering these two regulations I do not think anybosy can issue online prescriptions including me.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
