Very well: For some, less for others. Like most psychiatric medications, hard to predict until you try it.

Yes: Abilify (aripiprazole) is considered to be a second generation antipsychotic and a Dopamine receptor regulator. It has proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of psychosis as in schizophrenia.
