In brief: Possibly, although

it is not the first choice.
While Abilify (aripiprazole) can help with various symptoms of other conditions (depression, poor focus, anxiety, etc.), it is not really aimed at ADHD primarily; although, if it helps with depression, ADD symptoms may lessen because depression has symptoms that overlap with ADD.
