iboga influences dopaminergic systems as well and lots of other things 
in your brain.
noone really knows how those things work in detail.

personally i wouldn´t take any antipsychotics unless you really have 
to. there are lots of possible side effects and and i wouldn´t mix it 
with ibogaine no way but i am not the expert and that is just my 

maybe your best judgement is right in telling you to forget and you 
should rather go out and party and dance and meet people but again that 
is only a guess.

good luck!
