anxiety even with meds

Hi.  I am on Lexapro and klonopin, lamictal and seraquel.  I am diagnosed bipolar 2.  I have been feeling pretty good lately but my question is, has any one experienced anxiety, even with being on meds?

I have experienced anxiety while on meds.  If you are beginning a med it could just be adjustment to it.  Also some meds cause anxiety as a side-effect,  If you were doing well and you have break through anxiety you may need a dose change. Let your doc know and he may have to tweak your meds.

Hello Sue357.  I have been suffering from social anxiety for over three years and i have been on XR Seroquel for the last year in a half.
it has been helping me find peace within myself, but anxiety still haunts me daily.
Mostly when i go out to work, parties or even a simple phone call.

The Lexapro and Klonopin would be the anxiety meds.  Those are the ones tho doctor may need to look at.  A small dose change can make all the difference.

thanks.  I am on 30 mg of lexapro and 1 mg of klonopin 3 times a day ( klonopin) we switched to lexapro several months ago as I was on prozac and was a mess!  So far I have been doing better, just a little anxiety when I first wake up.  Not sure if this was normal or not.
