Venlafaxine/Effexor and Blood donation

Has anyone on this medication given blood? I was allowed to donate whilst on Citalopram, but this is a different type of Anti Depressant?

I was told I could still donate while on it, that was a few years ago. Ring their helpline to ask :smile:
theres quite a lot of drugs you can be on and still donate. Remember they get several "products" from the raw blood so it wont necessarily be a problem.

On the blood website theres an email thingy so you can email such questions and a doctor will get back to you within a couple days.
I don't know about that, but I also, was asking about the antidepresant called, venlafaxin??? Can you donate???
