On the tips and tricks for an easier fast thread I saw several people mentioning suppositories that contain caffeine and tylenol or similar.
Today I went to my local kuppat cholim pharmacy and asked them for such suppositories and they just goggled at me with big eyes and said that doesn't exist in Israel. No suppositories with caffeine in any combination. Is that true?

I never heard of any, but I never asked. We use drops called tzom kal (I think). 2 drops 4x the day before the fast.

Hmmm, they offered me some tzom kal pills. But this year that's a problem, isn't it? Taking pills on Shabbat and as a hachana (preparation) for something that starts after Shabbat?
Also, my real problem with the fast is that I'm a coffee addict. Never mind food and drink. It's the black gold I'm missing and that gives me withdrawal symptoms...

I bought regular acamol suppositories last year after a particularly bad fast.
Haven't had to use them yet but it's good to know I have them if I get a migraiine.

Thanks. I won't make it to Jerusalem before the fast but I'll keep the information for future reference (and fasts.)
