Are there any side effects to donating plasma?

By fahrenheit

For the majority of healthy adults who meet our donation eligibility requirements, donating plasma is a safe medical procedure, but some may receive mild side effects. Short-term plasma side effects are dehydration, dizziness, fatigue, bruising or discomfort, infection, or inflammation. If you experience any mild side effects during or after the process, don’t hesitate to get the attention of an LFB Plasma staff member to help. If you are away from our center, call the LFB Plasma hotline at 561-405-9457 and contact the nearest center.
