In brief: Technically yes, but

There is no clear contraindication to donating blood while on this, but it has side effects like high blood sugar, muscle pain, and headaches.
People might have an allergic reaction to the ingredients in this drug, so they cannot use it, along with cancers, or critical illness pts.. Blood might get to a recipient with these issues, so you should at least inform the staff when you donate.
