What medications treat both ADHD and depression?

The most common medications used to treat ADHD include stimulants. Rarely, stimulants are used for treatment resistant depression. There are also off-label drugs such as Wellbutrin that are used off-label to treat ADHD and are proven effective for depression.

In some cases, depression that occurs with ADHD may be caused by poor treatment for the symptoms of ADHD. Also, some doctors will prescribe two separate drugs (one for ADHD and one for depression).
