Some people find exercise relaxing and antidepressant. If it makes you feel bad, reconsider whethr you need strength training. DO take the weekend off and see how you feel after that. And of course in the new week you'll be able to discuss this with your doc.
I'm not quite as convinced as the drug company might want me to be, that escitalopram is hugely better than citalopram ( apart from being more expensive ) but some people really do seem to be suited well by it.
The primary chemical antidepressant, like surprisingly many chemicals and drugs, actually can come in 2 forms, in which the molecule is arranged in subtly different ways, like your left and right hand --- the hands contain the same elements, but are not identical, hence Left and Right. And in some cases, as this one, a Right-handed molecule may be less effective than a Left-handed one, or vice versa. Citalopram is a mixture of both versions, Escialopram is just one-handed !
