CF Treatment

Which treatments are you (or your child) taking on a day to day basis? (Remember, this is a place to talk about personal experiences, but we ask that you do not give medical advice.)

  1. Hi everyone, I am 30 with CF and CFRD and also on Trikafta. I do your typical airway clearance with albuterol, hypertonic saline, pulmozyme, cromolyn, and colistin as my inhaled antibiotic and my Monarch vest. I know a lot of people were able to cut down on meds after starting Trikafta. Has anyone kept everything the same? Wishing everyone well! Warmly, Janeil cystic-fibrosis.com Team Member
