Which Drugs Are Kosher for Passover?

The Chief Rabbinate has published its list of orally-taken medications that are kosher for Passover by virtue of the absence of leavening ingredients. Among the approved drugs are Acamol tablets and syrup and Nurofen tablets, while Nurofen syrup is not on the list. The Clalit health fund is operating a "Kosher Connection" hotline for clarifications in Hebrew on the kashrut of different drugs. For more information, in Hebrew, click here.
