Kaffara for unintentional broken fast in Ramadan

Q:

Aoa
I had been feeling dizzy during the day because of gas in my food tract which was accompanied with varying blood pressure.
I tried my best to keep my fast but then had to break it so as I could take some medication to resolve the issue.
Since this was a purely unintentional act, do I need to pay the kaffarah and how do I do it?

JazakAllah
Haseeb

A:

Wa alaykum salaam

You just have to keep qaza of this fast. There is no need of kaffara.
