Sorry to hear about your current situation with your eating.
I am on Escitalopram (5mg) just coming up to 2 week mark.
I have never been a great eater and my appetite decreased from day 1 of taking them, although it is improving slowly now.
I am sure this is a side effect of the meds that affects different people in different ways/times.
I am currently taking 2 booster/protein shakes a day to help increase my appetite and to get nutrients, I have just started taking Vitamin C and Omega 3 too, as I have been told this will help anxiety in general. When my eating was "normal" I was a "grazer", little often, try small healthy snacks during the day.
I am sure your Doctor will respect your wishes to stay on this med, especially when you tell him/her that you are starting to feel positive effects.
Stay strong and take care xx
