>It's due to the alpha-2 NE antagonism.

I concur with this. Alpha-2 antagonists can augment dopamine blockers in the treatment of schizophrenia. Combining alpha-2 antagonism and d2 antagonism can result in antipsychotic effects with a lower degree of d2 blockade. This suggests that alpha-2 antagonists may have a dopamine lowering effect (at least in certain brain regions).
