Why would this be prescibed for someone being treated for ADD? Also, this person, my son, has epilepsy, controlled by Carbatrol. What's risk level?

Wellbutrin is a drug that works differently than the other families of drugs. It has been prescribed in the past for ADD. So, it must have some success rate. You might ask his doctor, how he thinks the wellbutrin is going to help him. Wellbutrin is often prescribed as a booster, to a second drug. Its very popular when used as in a combination form. Just as abilify and lithium are oftenalso used for that purpose. Very best wishes to you,
