Is it OK to donate blood if I take Fioricet(Butalbital APAP Caffeine)?
I have a prescription for Fioricet(Butalbital APAP Caffeine) for back and head pain and I was wondering if it’s still ok to donate blood? I have donated blood before, but not since I’ve been taking fioricet. Is it ok for me to donate still?
Answer by BloodDoc
There is no deferral from volunteer blood donation while taking Fioricet(Butalbital APAP Caffeine). However, you should be free of headaches prior to donation.
Thanks for such a generous gift.
