What is the ruling on using suppositories during the day in Ramadaan, if the fasting person is sick?

Praise be to Allaah.  

There is nothing wrong with using suppositories, which are placed in the back passage, if a person is sick, because this is not food or drink, and it is not like food or drink. 

Rather the Lawgiver has forbidden us to eat and drink, so whatever is like food and drink comes under the same ruling, and whatever is not like them whether in name or in how it is used, does not come under the ruling on food and drink.
