If it is for medical reasons there are very few things that are forbidden in Islam, even medicine-containing alcohol is permissible if there is no other option. Allah (swt) does not want to impose hardship on us and maintaining your health ensures that you will continue to pracitice your faith and live your life.

Many scholars consider the need for medicine equal to that of food, for both are necessary for preserving life. However, they maintain that any medicine containing a haram substance is permissible only under the following conditions: If the patient's health is endangered if the medicine is not taken; if there is no entirely halal alternative or substitute medication available; or if the medication is prescribed by a Muslim physician who is both knowledgeable and God-conscious.
