For the most part no: Drug induced anemia - low red blood cell counts - from klonopin (clonazepam) is exceptionally rare, basically case reportable(meaning it's so rare that cases of this are published for doctors to better understand). While there are reported incidents, in general, anemia isn't felt to be a common side effect at all.
