Low dose Geodon for dopamine

I'm currently taking 20mg of Geodon per day (10mg 2xday). Since taking it, I seem to have more motivation, better focus, and more concentration. I also seem to have more interest in things, and I feel more fulfillment from accomplishments as well. I'm more confident as well, and I seek out more things. However, I also take things somewhat harder, and I get mad a little more easily.

The Geodon at that dose feels more like a very mild version of speed. I feel more alert in the mornings and less foggy during the day. It's also easier to get going in the morning.

Like other antipsychotics like amisulpride, does low dose Geodon preferentially block the presynaptic dopamine receptors indirectly causing an increase in dopamine transmission?

My doctor told me that Geodon acts more like a dopamine agonist at very low doses.

When I was at higher doses of Geodon (over 40mg/day), I had the opposite effects. I had effects such as ADHD symptoms, can't focus worth crap, apathy, zombified state, EPS, loss of memory. I think I got these effects because the higher doses block all dopamine receptors.
