Some may mask the effect of the benzodiazepine but for a patient using them for anxiety its like a zero sum gain at some point -- "aagh, I feel anxiety", "okay, I'll take my Xanax", "now I'm tired", "okay I'll take some amphetamine derivative", "agh, I'm crawling the walls", "okay, I'll take more Xanax" -- pretty soon one is drowned in equal or greater quantities of Xanax plus Concerta, Provigil, caffeine, etc.

Just a non-doctor opinion but I can see the scenario happening.
