I'm not sure what you're taking the Lexapro for -- if it is for depression more than anxiety I would say a small dose of Wellbutrin SR/XR.

For anxiety I'm not quite sure -- I know you don't want to reduce the dose, but often the suggestion (this doesnt work for Prozac at 7 days half life) with SSRIs is to drop the pill for one day (or part of one depending on the medication) and return. Lexapro has a half life of a little more than one day in the lab, so if you want to have a better performance, you would have to drop it the day before you are... motivated.

There is also Yohimbine, but it really is a counteractive effect to SSRIs but can have nasty side effects that one really doesn't want to deal with.

Remeron would probably not be a good choice as it precipitates drowsiness and some orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure), and blood rushes ... well anyhow.
