I don't know actually. I assume anything that tweaks the dopamine circuits one way or another has a better chance than something else at targeting negative symptoms. Abilify with its mixed dopamine agonist/antagonist properties as well as serotonergic properties sounds to me, on paper anyway, like an appropriate choice. Maybe mixed with amisulpride?

Prozac+adrafinil was pretty good on negative symptoms for me for a long time. Other people have had similar success with Modafinil added to ssris, or by itself.
