Sortret (Isotretinoin) - usually given for severe acne.
Soriatane (Acitretin) - usually given for severe psoriasis.
Tegison (Etretinate) - usually given for severe psoriasis.
Growth hormone from human pituitary glands – used
only until 1985, usually for children with delayed or impaired growth. • Insulin from cows (bovine – or beef – insulin) - used to
Hepatitis B immune globulin - given following exposure
to hepatitis B.
NOTE: This is different from the hepatitis B vaccine that is a series of three
injections given over a six-month period to prevent future infection from
exposures to hepatitis B.

If you would like to know why these medications
affect you as a blood donor, please keep reading:

• If you have taken or are taking Proscar, Avodart,
Propecia, Accutane, Amnesteem, Claravis, Sortret,
Soriatane, or Tegison
these medications can cause birth
defects. Your donated blood could contain high enough
levels to damage an unborn baby if transfused to a
pregnant woman. Once the medication has been cleared
from your blood, you may donate again. Following the last
dose, the deferral period is one month for Proscar,
Propecia and Accutane; six months for Avodart; and three
years for Soriatane. Tegison requires an indefinite deferral.
Growth hormone from human pituitary glands was
prescribed until 1985 for children with delayed or impaired growth. The hormone was obtained from human pituitary glands, which are found in the brain. Some people who took this hormone developed a rare nervous system condition called Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD). CJD has not been associated with synthetic growth hormone preparations available since 1985. • Insulin from cows (bovine – or beef – insulin) is
injected to treat diabetes. If this insulin was imported into the United States from countries in which “mad cow disease” has been found, it could contain material from infected cattle. • Hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) is injected to
prevent infection following an exposure to hepatitis B. HBIG does not prevent hepatitis B infection in every case; therefore, any one who has received HBIG must wait 12 months to donate blood since hepatitis B can be transmitted through transfusion to a patient.
