        I’m new to this.  Been eating toast with peanut butter with each pill.  Is there something else I can take?  I have had no stomach problems.

          I’m not sure whether your taking Esbriet or Ofev, but it really doesn’t matter as both encourage with food.  I started on Ofev but switched because of side effects.  I still have them but they are more tolerable.  In my case I just eat something before I take a pill.  I take one with breakfast and one with dinner.  On Esbriet you need a third so  I will have a light lunch when I take my pill.  I’ve have enough side effects so I’ve never tried taking either med without eating something.

              The only way I have been able to keep the nausea under control is to take the pills in my mouth with the food, taking them before or after doesn’t work as well, but with seems to do the trick. I take 3 pills 3 x day Esbriet.

              I was diagnosed with IPF 6 years ago and have been taking Esbriet since. Before I take my 3 pills 3 times a day, I eat some protein, a slice of cheese, or slice of sandwich meat, and egg or ……. This seems to help me not getting an upset stomach or heartburn. Hope this may help.

                I find if I eat half my meal then take my Ofev and finish my meal I get less side effects. (Mostly diarrhea)
