I need to take adhd and depression medicine. I wasn’t able to wake up before fajr today and only just realized now that I also can’t take my meds without breaking my fast. I still need to talk to my doctor about changing the time i take them from 9 am to 4am. Would it be permissible to break my fast to take these medicines and make it up at a later date? 
I’ve read online and my issue is while I do need to take these medicines, I could’ve woken up early and taken them if I had not forgotten. So if I could’ve does that mean it is not permissible to break my fast now? I am very conflicted but these are the types of medicine were mjssing a day has serious drawbacks.
