I take lexapro (have taken it for a couple years now). It works great for me. I still feel bad sometimes, but life is not a straight line and when I am down, I don't stay down.
A reason for taking an Anti-D??? Brain chemicals. A tiny imbalance in your brain chemicals can cause misfiring in your brain. It affects the way you interpret information. The lexapro won't give you that brain chemical, but it will help you body retain what your body manufactures. Physical activity will give you more of that chemical too. Try going with your Dr.'s advice and see what happens. If you don't like the results, there are lots of options and combinations. Give it time. Your doctor will help you determine how well it is working.
