Abilify is an antipsycholtic medication and affects children differently.

My daughter was wired, restless and could not sleep with Abilify.
Her psychiatrist suggested we dose her only in the AM. Unfortunately it wasn't the med for her, but many children do have success with it.

You should always run this by your son's psychiatrist first, but I would imagine it would be fine to split up his dose (1/2 AM and 1/2 PM), or dose him all in the morning.

Good luck!
