Could be either: I think too many changes took place which can cause side effects, . I also think that the doses of the new medications may not be correct for the equivalent strength of the old medications. Talk with your doctor.

More likely : Withdrawal from klonopin, Lexapro (escitalopram) or both. I would recommend you contact your prescribing physician for advice as to what you can do to improve the symptoms that you are experiencing. Best wishes.
