|Halacha - antibiotic on a fast|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Answer: An antibiotic, which could lead to a potentially dangerous relapse of resistant infection by missing a day, may certainly be taken on a taanis. One may also use a small amount of water, if necessary, but it is preferable to add a little lemon juice or vinegar to render the water unpalatable.
