In brief: Not much evidence

Bromocriptine is a Dopamine agonist (acts like dopamine), and most medications helpful for adhd increase Dopamine activity.
However, there is not a lot of research suggesting that it helps with adhd, and it's safety and efficacy is not well studied especially in children. Researchers are studying it to help with executive functioning, but results aren't in yet.
