See your doctor: If you have already continued it for 5 months after your rash developed, I would not think that it is likely related, since it would probably have gotten MUCH worse. A health professional needs to take a look at your rash, get a full medical history and determine the cause. Talk to whoever is prescribing the clonazepam. You may need to see a dermatologist for the right answer.
