I read that some people for example take stimulants and at the same time also take supplements like L-Theanine or tyrosine. I really wonder how do you know if you can even combine a supplement with a drug? Did you ask your doctor if that's possible? I don't think many doctors even know this. I think most would simply say no.
I once asked my neurologist about L-Tryptophane against depression and he totally scared me and said that it can cause serotonine-syndrome. To me it seems like hardly any regular doctor will recommend supplements at all. They rather prescribe drugs.
