We’re posting again this reminder early enough (for the Arba Kosos – 4 cups of wine) If you are taking Flagyl – Metronidazol you are NOT allowed to drink any Alcohol!!!
All other IBD patients please double check with your doctor if its not gonna harm you bad! and if you’re allowed to drink even a drop while you are taking your medication. please be responsible!
You should exercise extreme caution and consult with your doctor and Rabbi/Rav before making a decision not to take a medicine on Pasech (Passover). As important as one treats the laws of Kashrus (Jewish dietary laws), one is also obligated to treat the Mitzvah (commandment) of ונשמרתם מאוד לנפשותיכם – “V’Nishmartem M’od L’Nafshotaichem” – “Take care of your health”. Therefore, under no circumstances should an individual forego taking a prescribed medication on Pesach (and during the year…) without first consulting one’s physician and Rabbi/Rav for a careful analysis of the situation.
Please forward this to all Patients & their families you know
We would like to wish all of you a Chag Kosher V’Samayach! A happy and healthy Yom Tov!
