If your Psychiatrist has already prescribed you Escitalopram bases on the assessment and your tolerability, it is worth trying it for at least 4-6 weeks to see the benefits. Dose may need reviewing. Lack of energy, motivation, ruminations thoughts are all symptoms of anxiety and depression. These medicines should help you with these issues. Medicine is just part of the treatment. Give it a good try and make sure you also engage on cognitive behavior therapy and other lifestyle modifications which is going to help you for faster recovery. Regards
