Is it permissible to use medication that contains ingredients that may be haraam?
If there is no adequate alternative for the product that contains Haraam
ingredients, and the product is prescribed by a reliable physician, it will
be permissible to use the product.
It is not permissible for a physician to prescribe medication having Haraam
ingredients if there is an adequate alternative. In the case of a non-Muslim
physician, the Muslim patient should inform the physician of the ruling of
the Shari'ah and request him to take cognisance of that.
and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
