Flupenthixol (FPX) is particularly anti-depressive of the anti-psychotics. Amisulpride and sulpiride likewise. Aripiprazole (APZ) and cariprazine (CPZ) in low doses can also be activating.

Higher dose is not necessarily better, particularly so in the case of APZ and CPZ. The standard dose of FPX for depression as far as I'm aware is 0.5 to 1 mg.
