Medications – What prescribed medications will defer someone from donating?

Most prescribed medicines don’t prevent you from donating, but the medical condition they are prescribed for might.

There are also some medications that should not be given to pregnant women and newborn babies. If you are taking Roaccutane (for the treatment of acne) and/or Neotigason (for the treatment of psoriasis) you won’t be able to donate while you’re taking them and for a certain time afterwards to ensure they’re not still in your blood.

If you take prescribed medications, please note their names and call us on 13 14 95 to see if any of them will affect your eligibility to donate.
