Meds In Ramadan
Posted 30 July 2011 - 12:07 AM
I have always fasted, fasting is not a problem for me!
I was diagnosed with ADHD in February and now I am taking meds, I only take them when I need them, basically when I got school and/or work (if it's busy, and it very rarely isn't).
I take one pill around 9-9:30 am, if I take it too early it wears out early and if I take it too late it's useless and will cause insomnia.
If i fast I can't take my meds, not taking the meds will not kill me, it will just make me more prone to mistakes, which COULD cost my company lots of money, my grades and research (thesis) will suffer.
Another issue, but less critical, is that one of the side effects is thirst, i dry out quicker than usual.
Am I obligated to fast?
Thanks in advance
