Donating Blood While Using Kesimpta (ofatumumab)
Hi there. I've just started on Kesimpta (ofatumumab) injections and have done 3 weekly injections before I begin the monthly injection cycle. I've had a blood donation appointment for months (before my diagnosis) and not sure if I can donate blood now that I'm on this medication? I'm trying to ring my MS doctor at the hospital but can't get through so far. Does anyone have any thoughts?
Hi @markmalekpour I thought us MSers were unable to donate blood? (Here in the UK anyway) We can donate our organs apparently, but our blood is dodgy! so not wanted. I always wanted to donate blood to get a free pint of Guinness at the end.
My guess is you can't and MS itself will probably exclude you in the first place
