Not as a standard treatment. Typically Abilify (aripiprazole) is used for conditions such as bipolar mood disorder. There have been some studies looking at using it in ADHD, but they are just in the research phase. So, in a few years, this may be something else to try, but for now, most physicians stick to one of the standard classes of medications. In someone who has bipolar and ADHD both, this might be a possible treatment now.

Abilify is most commonly prescribed for major depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, but does have other "off label" uses.

This depends if you have ADHD or not. If you do have ADHD, it will calm you down, and it will be prescribed to you. If you do not have ADHD it will make you hyper, jittery, nervous, and sometimes a bit scary. It will NOT be prescribed if you don't have ADHD. In any case, you will stop eating or sleeping, and easily become addicted to it.
