None. If you are taking xanax (alprazolam), (alprazolam) chances are there will be no extra benefit from any supplement because none would compare with that.

Short-acting Ritalin (methylphenidate) works 20-60 min. after a dose, peaks at 1-2 hours & wears off in 3-4 hours. Irritability & anxiety are either side effects or rebound effects as dose wears off. Multiple daily doses must be taken 30 minutes before the prior dose wears off.
