There is no exact type of medicine for anorexia. It depends on the person. Usually a doctor will prescribe a medicine to help or fix a problem that is associated with the eating disorder, such as depression or liver damage. Weight-gain supplements or nutritional drinks / shakes might also be perscribed to help the anorexic get to a healthy weight again with proper nutritional levels of vitamins and minerals.

I am the same age and experiencing the same problems. I have other hypothyroid symptoms also, but my levels aren't low enough for the doctor to prescribe medicine.

Medications can only gain weight if weight are added to them. Medications are not living creatures.
