In brief: Wellbutrin (bupropion) is

Excellent for atypical depression/ seasonal affective disorder.
Would not use it first line for adhd. However, it can be used off-label for that purpose.

In brief: It certainly can

Wellbutrin (bupropion) is first-line antidepressant (as effective as others like Prozac and zoloft), and also has some efficacy for adhd symptoms (although considered second-line after stimulants like Ritalin and adderall).
Wellbutrin (bupropion) can be a good choice when depression and adhd co-occur.
