I was prescribed 20 mg of Prozac daily, 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) as needed for panic disorder and already take 40 mg of ritalin a day. Is this safe?

In brief: Balanced combo

It is a safe combination mental/mood disorders.
The only interaction is xanax (alprazolam) increases and Ritalin decreases sedation and drowsiness. However in the doses you mentioned is balanced. If any concern contact your treating physician for clarification. Rec. Ask your treating doctor about the biofeedback.
