Lexapro, ativan & ambien

Hi all I just got seen yesterday by my doc and she prescribed me 10mg Lexapro, 1mg of Ativan and 10mg of Ambien. I've been on Ativan before and it helped with sudden onset panic/anxiety attacks. I found it also helped me sleep. I have insomnia. I find that after I take the Lexapro I'm exhausted. I got a full nights sleep last night and the night before last and I am sitting here out of it and beyond tired. I'm assuming it's the Lexapro because that is the only thing I have taken thus far today. I am only on day 3 of taking it and I'm only taking 1/2 pill for the 1st week. I find that my anxiety is not alleviated at all by the Lexapro and it almost has made things more intense by way of my anxiety and depression. The mood swings are a bit extreme today as well. Do these reactions subside if given enough time? I've been reading up on it and know everyone reacts differently but I'm hoping this will help me and not make me almost zombie-like as I have been. Thanks for any input.
