Controlling behavior is generally a result of anxiety (although it is so hard to see that behind the raging, controlling person is someone scared, and I'm NOT suggesting you be sympathetic when someone refuses to confront anxiety and mistreats you!!) BUT, yes, the anti-depressant could help. I wouldn't count on it, but it could.
As someone said and you seem aware, you can always decide to leave later, and you aren't ready to go know anyway. Still, do NOT sell yourself short. Have a very clear idea of what would be acceptable, and don't compromise beyond that. You only get one chance at life, after all, and living in tolerable misery does not sound all that attractive, does it?
