Re: plasma and lithium

Hi! You definitely can Not donate with lithium, but I don't know about Vicodin. I kind of doubt it tho, since it is a narcotic. Cheers!

Re: plasma and lithium

Thank you TinoRock. I don't want to go thru the three hour process just to be told I cannot donate. But why can I not donate because of the lithium? Does it affect the plasma somehow?

Re: plasma and lithium

Hi! I wish I had a definitive or scientific answer for you, but I don't. I just picture the lithium as being a very foreign element in the blood, and someone in need of clean blood really doesn't need this addition. Again, that's just how I picture it. Ciao!
