Can someone on Suboxone donate blood?

Yes! There is no reason that a person on opioids or buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) cannot donate blood. If you have a history of HIV or Hepatitis C, these might be reasons that you cannot donate blood. Nowadays, however, all blood in the United States is screened for sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C. If you have Hepatitis C or HIV you should tell your doctor before donating blood.
