Been on clonazepam 1mg for 18 months. 5 months ago developed rash in arms and legs,redness,eruption,dryness in legs. Should I quit the drug?

Viral infections that cause cold symptoms and other symptoms can sometimes cause such skin patterns (fifth disease, caused by a virus, can cause reddish patterns). A doctor can evaluate if needed. ...Read more
