Medicine to enable fasting


One should not receive injections which will enable him to fast; there is no obligation to do so, and doing so may be an inappropriate use of medicine as well as an act of wounding in performing the injection.

This is true for any fast.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:90)

Have a great day,
