In brief: Depends on supplemen

Speak to your doctor about what you intend to take with Ritalin (methylphenidate).
there may or may not be a negative interaction to the combination.

In brief: Need specifics

We would need to know what specific dietary supplements you plan to take, as some herbals and others can interact with pharmaceuticals.
If all you mean is a good multivitamin, probiotic, and omega-3's like in fish oil, those are probably fine.
