OCD/Depression/Anxiety... Abilify???

Hi, pretty new here. Havn't got much response but hopefully someone can help me out with this one. I have extreme OCD which was activated by a pregnancy 7 years ago, has progressively gotten worse. My last child had to be induced early because it was so bad I wasn't eating sleeping, spent most of my time at the sink..you get the picture. I have anxiety that makes me feel like i'm suffocating and a heavy weight on my chest all day.

Anyways I am on Welbutrin 150 mg XL twice daily, 20mg of Cipralex, and Clonazepam 0.5 6 a day usually. This medication has not been helping at all for my ocd (I have tried many different ones in the past 7 years)The Cipralex worked great for a while, then completely stopped working. My doctor just added 2mg of Abilify yesterday. I'm just wondering if anyone has had an experience with Abilify, and if it helped OCD/anxiety issues. And any side effects....today was the first day. My doc wants me to try and gradually get off the Cipralex if the Abilfy works.

Thanks so much for any input
