I just wanted to point out that Fluanxol seems to have little sedative potential. It is an anti-histamine, but I never noticed I got tired or apathetic from it, which is unlike trimipramine and clozapine.

Fluanxol has antidepressant effects, but the mechanism of action in this respect is unknown. For what it's worth, I didn't notice an an antidressant effect myself.

I've used doses of 4+ mg, and for several months, so I'm pretty familiar with this drug.

Seroquel is more sedative than Fluanxol, and probably a lot less effective for psychosis. It has little anti-dopaminergic action at typical doses. Then again, so does clozapine, which is regarded as a kind of gold standard for antipsychotics.
