Pramipexole sure is interesting, but difficult to come by... most doctors especially in Germany are afraid of full dopamine agonists ^^

Imho Aripiprazole is interesting because it is pro-dopaminergic at low dosages (2 mg) and it exhibits 5HT2-antagonist-properties AND it isn't a strong antihistamine. But yeah, your mileage may vary.

Low dosage of Olanzapine is also interesting, but strong antihistamine... ^^

What is your current regimen?
