Usually ok: Your eligibility will be based on the reason that the medication was prescribed. As long as the condition is under control and you are healthy, blood donation is usually permitted.

Yes. : It certainly depends on which drugs are talking about but prescription drugs, or any drugs for that matter, should never be abused.
