My psydoc added Fluanxol to Cariprazine ... i feel better for the moment depression wise and rest is improving it's day 5... never thought it could work, we wanted to switch and find a solution for my gambling induced problems by Abilify class Anti psychotic... IT IS ONLY DAY 5... but it has lifted my depression symptoms already from the start day 1 how is that possible so fast acting with fluanxol 1 mg?

The antidepressive mechanism of action of flupenthixol (Fluanxol) has not been elucidated to my knowledge. In some studies even less than 1 mg is enough to produce a noticeable effect. I don't know if higher doses are better, but they don't seem to be harmful with respect to the antidepressant action, although they would of course increase the probability of side effects.

Isn't cariprazine a partial d2 agonist like abilify? Would they not have the same effects. (i.e. induce gambling behaviour, etc?)

Yes gambling behaviors

Interesting, just started Fluanxol 0.5mg myself. How is it treating you so far?
