In brief: Meds side effects

Believe it or not, most psychotropic medicines give agitation, akathisia and anxiety as a side effect.
Taking more Seroquel (quetiapine) may make it worse , (akathisia). Have your psychiatrist re evaluate your medicines.

if you experience anxiety you should increase first the Lexapro (escitalopram) which is an antidepressant with anti anxiety component.
if this will not help you then you should take 25 mg of Seroquel (which might make you slight sleepy initially(as a PRN (as needed)
