I'm pretty sure it's OK to give blood when nursing. But what about when you're on Zoloft?

Yes. The blood bank will ask you questions about medications you take, but my understanding is all SSRIs are fine. I take an SSRI and another med and was able to give blood recently (well, I tried--I got woozy and threw up before they could even get the needle in). :
