If that doesn't work try olanzapine or risperidone. If the key is histamine H1-antagonism and not dopamine, then quetiapine (Seroquel) would be expected to work.

I'm saying it would work if the key turns out to be histamine H1-antagonism. If the key is dopamine antagonism, Seroquel wouldn't work.

Probably not, they are very different. Many people find that Abilify has an antidepressant action at low doses, but it never worked for me.
