Never heard of this: Effect of Abilify (aripiprazole) to increase libido, but it might persist. If not, wellbutrin (bupropion) in low doses -50-75 mg can also increase libido for some people. Your doctor can also test your testosterone and other hormone levels to see if that is responsible.

This may be because: Abilify can reduce prolactin levels. So if an elevated prolactin levels was causing low libido, adding Abilify could help. REF: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18308789. Glad to here this worked out for you.
