Brief Answer:
It is okay to stop Klonopin.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Vyvanse covers the ADD disorder, Lexapro covers the anxiety disorder, so there is no more need to use Klonopin.

Remember Klonopin needs to be stopped gradually ( tapered), if it is stopped immediately can have adverse effects on your health.
