Man, that's rough.  Anyone here ever try those time released meds for the fast?

I did... i think it helped... i woke up with a headache it got worse through out the day... i was thinking that the time release advil wasnt helping... at like 4pm my headache totally went away and i felt perfectly fine the rest of the fast

Woke up with a terrible splitting headache that stayed around all day until I popped a few tylenols as soon as I made havdala.  Not my easiest yom kippur to say the least.

Why didn't u take Tylenol during the fast, I asked a Ruv (regarding a different fast) and he said since it's not food it's ok.  Have you heard otherwise?

And how do you plan to get the tylenol down?

Dry swallow, it's not that hard. Unless that considered Saliva which is prohibited to swallow purposely.

I've never dry-swallowed any medication except those little red sudafed buttons.
Don't think I'd try a tylenol like that though.

I have dry swallowed real large pills, and believe me it's often easier than with liquid; liquid sometimes pushes it down even if it's not in the right position (for long pills), dry swallowing would not do that.

Taking Tylenol on Shabbos or Yom Tov might be a problem, even if it isn't a fast. So maybe Tisha b'av would have a different din (since you don''t have the gzeira of grinding herbs).

Definitely one of the stranger halachos of shabbos.

The reason for the medication ban is grinding.  Something that with modern medicine is not even a ch'shash anymore.
Better to have a debilitating headache for a 3 day yom tov than that?

Anyway, ask your LOR.

I heard that really there is no real issur - cuz its not Derech Achila... But still better not to

A friend of mine used caffeine suppositories a rav told him its not a problem

Great point, I don't know how I missed that. However Rabbi Farkash of Yirushulayim says that if the pain reaches a point that it would make you go to bed you are permitted to take medication.

I don't know if that applies to Yu"k though, even though it was Shabbos, since the Heter is based on "Mitzvah Liango Bachilah Ushtiya" and the ache will not let you do so --which obviously doesn't apply for Yu"k.

However my gut feeling is that if the choice is a splitting headache  or Davening like a mentch, any ruv will give you the Heter.

That is the reason not to take on shabbos (or yom tov) but there is still reasoning not to take - more like sometihing to do with eating... as I said before - a rav said its not even clear what wrong but not to

But you use a blech on your stovtop, no?

I guess like you said, everyone should follow their LOR.
