C and D don't make a parallel construction though. I would go with A.

'not so much as ' is idiom

C, D, E - left.

choice should be a reaction to certain medication to make it parallel to anxiety about travel, or stress before a job interview

only E is having that - but not correct.

I am left with D and C -

D seems less evil in terms of parallelism even though i will not completely agree with it.

C - changes the meaning that medications causing the anxiety and not the symptom.
