>a) Ask to push up the dose of Lexapro.

Most feasible option. She'll probably be happy with this and it will show you're being a good girl.

>b) Ask to add Amulsupride to it

I'd second that. They shouldn't have too much of a problem with it.

>c) Ask to add Abilify to it.

I wouldn't personally recommend that because if you have a bad reaction (many people do) you'll be in a worse place with your mood and anxiety, and the psychiatrist will probably be even more pissed off with you for wasting her precious time and budget money. So my vote is for the amisulpride but that might just be my own personal prejudice against Abilify and US-generated antipsychotics in general.

>d) Ask to add a stimulant to it (bearing in mind I'm not somnolent nt just lack any reallly motivation or drive) but still anxious at the same time.

No, don't even go there. Not in the UK - you'll look like a drug molester and it will probably be recorded as such in your notes.

>e) Ask to augment with somthing else.

Maybe bupropion (Wellbutrin/Zyban in the UK)?
