I don't know whether Klonopin aggravates ADD/ADHD. I would imagine that a very tiny dose wouldn't be problem, but I'm not sure. I did want to mention that I've read that Klonopin and other medications in that class (known as the benzodiazapines) should NOT be stopped abruptly, especially if someone is prone to seizures. Don't stop it abruptly, and don't stop it without your doctor's supervision, if you do decide to taper it.
