Patient :I sometimes donate plasma for extra cash on the side.
I take gabapentin but plan on stopping, because it has suddenly caused my heartrate to increase. My resting heartrate is 80-95. The donation center
requires that you heart rate be under 100. The times I took gabapentin it was from 105-140. My blood pressure is fine
and I take no other medication. Now my heart rate is normal again (75-90)
Am I safe to return to donate plasma?
Thanks so much in advance for your reply,
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood that you are a professional plasma donor, used to take Gabapentin and heart rate increased above 100 per minute.
No that it is normal, you can certainly donate plasma now.
I hope this answer helps you.
