Anxiety after influenza?

Hi guys. So this past winter, I tested positive for Influenza twice within an 8 week period. That wasn't a huge shocker because my immunity sucks because of a Vitamin D deficiency that I'm being treated for.

I got over both cases just fine, but afterwards my anxiety which had been extremely well controlled with just 10 mg. of escitalopram (Lexapro) went crazy. I had to increase my dosage and start taking a low dose of Xanax just to be able to sleep at night. Things have finally started coming back to normal and I'm weaning myself back down to the lower Lexapro dosage again slowly, but I'm just wondering if this is something anyone else has experienced after the flu?
