Hard to say: Methylphenidate is used to treat ADD. Cannabis, particularly smoking it can aggravate ADD symptoms. People with ADD are at greater risk of developing addictions and hence cannabis can present problems there as well. On the upside if cannabis is being used to help with PTSD or pain problems I could envision it along with the methylphenidate improving ADD symptoms. Advise edibles only.
