Does anyone know why I am not allowed to donate blood ?

I m nitrate dependant, and have been deferred from donating blood . I m just curious as to why a person on nitro cannot donate. I was told that I d have to go 3 months without nitro to have the deferral removed from my medical file.

I adore you dear friend. I was given nitro once and I thought my head would explode. My drug of choice is Adenosine, when I am tachy that is a wonder drug. When I was pregnant I couldn't get it and in the first trimester I was in the ER at least once a week. We did the head in ice water thing, that totally sucks. I know you have never wanted it but I do pray for you.
