Is it allowed to take medicines made of placenta? The Grand Ayatollah Shobairi’s answer

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Shobairi Zanjani answered a question about taking medicines made of placenta.

Question: Considering that currently many of the cosmetics and some medicines are made of placenta; what is the ruling on using and taking them?

The Grand Ayatollah Shobairi: It is Najis (unclean); therefore, taking medicines made of it except in absolute desperate situation is not allowed. Of course, there is no problem in injecting it, or using it as ointment, but for Salaat it must be removed and cleansed.
