Aripiprazole: Agree with dr. Khalily. Abilify (aripiprazole) is good for the treatment of schizophrenia & other psychotic disorders as well as bipolar disorder. It can be used as an adjunct with antidepressants for unipolar depression. I have also used it often for severe dissassociation with post traumatic stress disorder.
