For me - at least at the moment - it does not. I take it with Lamictal (+ xanax and focalin). My doctor and I had been trying to taper me off Lamictal to see how I would do without it. After a few weeks at 25 mg, I started to become quite depressed. I'm now at 50 mg and it appears to be working well. I seem to be less apathetic and draggy and feel less brain fog than I did at 100 mg, but I'm still getting the antidepressant benefit.

That said, I do have a friend who I believe may be on Abilify monotherapy, but I would need to double check on that.
