Hello & Welcome to Just Answers.

I would recommend that you take the Abilify at lunch for a week and see if that doesn't work better for you. You need to take the Wellbutrin in the morning hours, but it doesn't need to be at the same time of your Focalin. The Focalin is the one that gives you the most immediate response and effect....the wellbutrin comes on more softly and it's effect lasts over a couple days, so the one most crucial to immediate functioning is the Focalin. The Abilify also works over days, but it usually too activating to take later in the day for many.

My best to you.
