Medicine for a secondary illness


One who is permitted to take medication on Shabbat for a certain severe condition is not automatically permitted to take a separate medication on Shabbat for an unrelated, non-severe condition.

[Note: Rav Moshe elsewhere permits treatment of pain, where that pain might make healing from a dangerous condition more difficult. That must not be the case under discussion here.]

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:53)

Have a great day,
