I have a pretty severe case of depression. Others with my case are known to try to commit suicide. I have never tried because I know it is haram and I know that I should ever do that to myself or other loved ones. But there is a problem.

My doctor gave me a new medicine that is said to work really well to help me for at least a day or two. It was tested and reviewed and it really does seem good, but it has a small amount of some kind of drug. I haven't tried it yet cause I don't know if it is haram or not. I asked my doctor for an alternative to this medicine without that specific drug, but she said that there isn't anything like it, only the one I usually take (which isn't doing much lately).

If it is something that can help me, can I use it?

    Without the name of the medicine or the specific ingredient that you think may be haram, there is little that people can help you with. – UmH May 31 '17 at 13:44

As far as I know, if it helps you get cured or better, there is no problem. As God says in the Holy Quran, God made somethings haram in order to save us from the bad effect they have, and then he says, God doesn't want any bad thing happen to you...
So I believe if its helping you, its halal, but if you find any other replacement its better.

In surah Maedah ayah 3, at the end of ayah God says:

...But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above mentioned meats), then surely, God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (5:3)

  • Can you quote the verses correctly. I'm not a know it all but this sounds to me as a wide and free interpretation of verses? ahadith? words of wisdom? – Medi1Saif May 31 '17 at 21:34
  • @Medi1Saif Its in 5:3 (Maedah:3). At the end of ayah God says: ...But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above mentioned meats), then surely, God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (3) – Dr TJ May 31 '17 at 22:07
  • Add it to your post, that's where evidences belong! – Medi1Saif May 31 '17 at 22:13
