On Klonopin and still anxious

I just took 0.25 mg Klonopin, am supposed to take 0.5 mg/twice a day, and started to feel real uneasy  - anxious.  Even on 1 mg/day the effects are very subtle, no panic attacks, but still feeling anxious.  Can I increase the dose?

Would adding Lexapro 10 mg to the mix be effective?  I exercise daily, etc. etc. just always feel nervous and uneasy making small talk, avoiding going to events, etc.

You should take it as it was prescribed to you. If you feel that it's not helping, perhaps your doctor can either up the dosage or combine with Lexapro or something similiar. To be sure Klonopin is not causing harmful effects, your blood and liver function may need to be tested on a regular basis. Best wishes!
