As far as I am informed you need stimulants for treatment of ADHD. Most commonly used are Methylphenidate and Atomoxetine. Sometimes stuff like Bupropion is applied. But what about classic antidepressants with stimulant (NRI) properties? Let's say Desipramine or Nortriptyline, Reboxetine!? Can they help to some degree?

Yes, they can and are sometimes used. Protriptyline is used as well, and to me, I find it the most stimulating TCA. Desipramine is moderately stimulating but not as much as protriptyline. Nortriptyline is kinda neutral. Imipramine too, as it metabolizes to desipramine, but imipramine can be a bit sedating.
