> okay so abilify is a partial agonist. full agonists are used for parkinsonss . Im sure abilify alone can produce an anti depressant effect if ur dopamine is low.I dont think I need a full dopamine agonist I think a partial agonist will do for me besides you dont want too much dopamine either that can lead to side effects. so abilify would be a good fit as it blocks some dopamine receptors too .

I have not seen Abilify by itself produce a lasting antidepressant effect.

For you, given your current medications, I would suggest that you consider adding Lamictal to Wellbutrin and Abilify. Lamictal seems to be pro-dopaminergic, and possesses unequivocal antidepressant properties. I have seen these three drugs work extremely well for a friend of mine.

At this point, I think we must admit our impotence when trying to predict drug effects with certainty based upon what little we understand. Scientists just don't know enough yet. Sometimes, empirical evidence trumps theory. We can know what works without knowing why. For now, I think it is folly to allow personal theories regarding neurobiology dictate which drugs to try and which drugs not to try. It is perhaps more dangerous to eliminate drugs from consideration than to choose which to include. It would be a tragedy to deny a treatment that would work just because your theories don't predict it.
