A Matter of Faith: It can be challenging to make choices for health that raise a conflict w/ faith. Only your soul knows best. But, many devout I've known offer advice that exemption from religious rigor for medical reason is given. Depending on Rx directions, try to find a way to fit all doses (as well-spaced as possible) into allowable times. Or you might extend your fast days to after your Tx. Health is a gift!
