Pesach Notificaion

Dear Memeber,

As the Yom Tov Pesach is around the corner, we would like to remind you again, You should exercise extreme caution and consult with your doctor and Rabbi/Rav before making a decision not to take a medication on Pesach. As important as one treats the laws of Kashrus, one is also obligated to treat the Mitzva of "V'Nishmartem M'Od L'Nafshotaichem" - "Take care of your health"
. Therefore, under no circumstances should an individual forego taking a prescribed medication of Pesach (and during the year...) without first consulting one's physician and Rav for a careful analysis of the situation. Remember! We are eating Matzoh's... Don't take a chance and please be responsible!

And for the 'Arba Kosos' remember, if you are taking Antibiotics (As Flagyl – Metronidazol and same goes to a lot of other) you are not allowed to drink any alcohol!
All other IBD patients should please double check with your doctor if the effectiveness of your medication will not be decreased or render them useless while mixing them with alcohol.

It's Yom Tov, it's the Matzah... The food... etc. Remember! Your health is important to you and to your family!

Please call your doctor if you have any issues, if you have a problem reaching your doctor (Yom Tov is a weekend...), feel free to contact us anytime, we will try our best to get you through. Do not hesitate to call us anytime.

Please forward this email to all patients and their families you know.

We would like to wish you a Chag Kosher V'Samayach! A happy and healthy Yom Tov!
