Maybe an increase in the medication would make sense, though obviously that is something you should discuss with your physician. As you probably know, sometimes when you increase the dose of medication, you can see an increase in anxiety for the first few weeks. Of course not everybody experiences that, but it is a possibility. As you probably know, 5 mg is a very low dose of Lexapro
There may be some other things you can try to relieve anxiety as well, such as certain teas that tend to be relaxing, exercise, meditation, breathing exercises, etc..
