wat do u suggest
My mother had idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Idiopathic meaning cause of her pulmonary fibrosis was unknown. The doctors could not determine the cause of her pulmonary fibrosis, even after a lung biopsy. I am not recognizing any of the meds that you have mentioned, as my mother was not on any of these meds. But, there are a number of meds to treat pulmonary fibrosis, such as the ones you have mentioned. My mother I do know was on prednisone which is a steroid. She also took Imuran for the pulmonary fibrosis. Imuran is an anti-rejection drug used in transplant patients. But, is used to treat pulmonary fibrosis as well. I truly wish I could be of further help to you. My best suggestion is for you to have a good pulmonary specialist. And ask as many questions about your condition and the meds as much as is possible. I too have a lung disease called COPD...Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. I wish you the absolute very best. You are in my prayers.
