I have been on Lexapro before for anxiety, and am also on the pill.  Honestly, if you’ve just switched brands of BC I would give it a few months before making any other changes.  Sometimes it takes a while for you to notice a difference once you switch brands.

Do you have any methods to help you with anxiety?  I too came off of the anxiety meds and now deal with it naturally.  Try working out, doing yoga, meditating, getting a massage, or any other thing to help you chill out.  If those things help your crazy feelings, you’ll know it was the anxiety and not the birth control.  If that doesn’t help, look into going on a different pill, or thinking about a different type of hormonal birth control, the pill isn’t the only option! 

Do you mind me asking what brand of pill you’re on? I noticed I’m less crazy when I’m on a pill that is monophasic, instead of something like ortho tri cyclen that has three phases.  The hormone changes in the pill plus my natural hormones messed me up for real.  Now that I’ve switched, I’m so much more sane! =)
