Hi, I have Ankylosing Spondylitis, and I am on a weekly injection of Enbrel (etanercept). I am wondering whether or not I may donate blood? Thank you!!

In brief: Better not

although you need to be commended for wanting to donate, but in your case it might affect your enbrel (etanercept) blood level, and better check as well with the blood bank you intend do donate to, they have a list of conditions that shouldn't donate blood, goodluck
