Hi,  I too take 2 klonopin at night, it helps with sleeping and morning anxiety.  This would help you with your morning anxiety, as you morning dose has worn off by then.
Once your Lexapro reaches a therapeutic level, that will also help.  This will take 4-6 weeks.  Hope this helps and take care!

Yes, that's exactly what it does. By the time you go to bed, your morning dose has worn off, so your anxiety returns.  It's made a world of difference with me, and I think it will with you as well!
