Larynxa is correct, Welbutrin is not classified as a stimulant. It is atypical in that it works by increasing dopamine and norepinephrine rather than the usual feel good neural transmitter, serotonin.

It was, however, marketed as a drug to treat ADHD without any clinical studies to determine if it is effective in treating ADHD ever being done. The company got in hot water over it awhile back. I don’t know if any testing has been done since. Personally, I don’t find it very effective. But others seem to benefit from it.
