What are the side effects of Lexapro?

HI, I started taking Lexapro 8 weeks ago. I just increased dose from 10mg to 15mg. I am definitely more anxious than usual. Will that go away? I have been on 15 for 1 week. He also suggested taking clonapin or zanax to ease the anxiety bu I was confused by that. Thank you
