Want Blood Donors To Drug Users?
Good morning … my friend has been taking methamphetamine and ecstasy for a year … how long has the drug content been in the blood … has it been gone for a week? The problem is that he wants to donate his blood to his parents … is it possible to donate blood after one week of not taking drugs and whether the drug is still contained in his blood … for the answer I thank you
Hello Isda Gonzes,
Sabu is a popular name for the drug methamphetamine. Ecstasy is a drug with methylenedioximethamphetamine. Both are types of psychostimulant drugs (stimulate the central nervous system) and sympathomimetics. Both methamphetamine and ecstasy are abused as recreational drugs with the aim of obtaining effects of increased pleasure, increased energy, hallucinations, weight loss, and so on. The use of this drug will continuously lead to tolerance (the same dose has not caused the desired effect) so that users continue to increase the dose and frequency of use. Side effects arising from nausea, visual disturbances, excessive sweating, dry mouth, sleep disorders, anxiety, aggression, memory problems, libido disorders, and so on. Long-term complications in the form of damage to various organs in the body.
The half-life of ecstasy in the body is about 7 hours. Ecstasy can remain detectable in the blood for 24-48 hours after use. Methamphetamine can be detected in the blood immediately after use and can remain detectable in the blood for up to 24-72 hours.
Before potential blood donors are taken to donate blood, screening is usually done first especially for hemoglobin levels and infectious diseases such as hepatitis B / C, HIV / AIDS, etc. If it is declared negative and appropriate, the donor's blood is taken. Some conditions that are not allowed to become blood donors are people with high blood pressure, suffering from blood disorders, addicted to certain drugs, suffering from infectious diseases such as syphilis / hepatitis / AIDS, suffering from epilepsy, etc.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
