|Halacha - medicine on Shaboss|
|Submitted by Chaim H Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Answer: Yes, one may take antibiotics on Shabbos because discontinuing the medicine could potentially lead to a recurrence of drug-resistant strep which could even be a chole sh'yesh bo sakana. However, evena chole sh'ayn bo sakana may take antibiotics if he is weak or bedridden.
