  • Effectiveness
    Major (for cystic fibrosis)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (coughing up blood (hemoptysis))
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Twice daily
Advice & Tips: noticed with lower lung capacity that bleeding started more frequently. it also seemed to be more severe if I would do a treatment at night and not clear all of it out of my lungs. residual med would sit in my lungs while I slept, which would cause a lot of bleeding the following morning. We found that lowering the dose to just the mornings or not taking before bed would help, but eventually this became to persistent for me to continue it.
