Dear doctors, I'm a 27 years old guy. I never make blood donation because I was on a long term treatment of carbamazepine following an accident. My question is: if I don't give blood, will something occur in my body?

No.
Hi No, nothing will occur in your body because of this reason. It is recommended but not compulsory. Blood donation helps in reducing the risk of heart and liver ailments caused by iron overload in the body that by the process of blood donation are maintained at healthy levels. These heart or liver related ailments can be avoided by indulging into a healthy diet and lifestyle too.
