Medication during Ramadan

A lot of people, especially those who take medication regularly, wonder about the possibility of taking medication and fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. We recommend that you contact your physician and get their opinion on the matter. However, here are the general guidelines for taking medication while fasting:

  • Medication that is taken once a day: take at the time of iftar or suhour.
  • Medication that is taken twice a day: take at the time of iftar and suhour.
  • Medication that is taken three or more times a day: please consult with your physician or pharmacist to find an alternative with the same effect but lower frequency.

We wish you health and Ramadan Mubarak.
