Medications usually don’t hamper the blood donation process. However, it is best to consult your general practitioner (GP) before donating blood. Medications like isotretinoin, dutasteride, clopidogrel, heparin, hepatitis-B immune-globulin have a waiting period of a few days to a few months. Etretinate makes you ineligible to donate blood altogether. One should also wait till he/she recovers completely from infections, if any, before donating blood.

I suggest you take prior advice from your doctor before you do anything.

Its best that you wait for few days since medications stay in your blood for a while
