Hello Tasyasaffa, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The medicine given to you is an antibiotic drug. Some conditions must be considered before you make a blood donor. Where one of the conditions is not allowed for blood donation when you take certain drugs.
In principle, if someone gets antibiotics, it is because in the blood they can contain bacteria. So given these antibiotics to kill bacteria or germs in the blood. It is feared that the bacteria will move to the donor recipient.
However, the medicine given to you is an antibiotic that contains minocycline to treat minor infections or as a prevention for acne. You are still allowed to donate blood. But you should still tell the blood donor PMI if you are taking these antibiotics.
Or if someone in an acute infection is then given antibiotics, you are allowed a donor if you have completed antibiotic treatment as recommended, then at least 5-7 days you can only do blood donation.
