Does taking Klonopin impact intradermal allergy testing?

Patient: Does Klonopin impact intradermal allergy testing?

 

 

Doctor: No, there are no known clinical effects of clonazepam (Klonopin) that may interfere with intradermal allergy testing. Ho wever, some studies have reported immunological effects of Benzodiazepines (including Clonazepam) in mice, but not in humans. Allergic reactions to clonazepam per se, is also rarely observed.
