    I’m new to Ofev, and I have read that some people have success managing the side effects through diet; e.g., having a protein of some kind before taking a dose of Ofev, or a banana, or peanut butter. So far, I’ve been lucky – very few and very minor side effects – but I wonder how long my luck will hold out. What works for you?

    No one tell you exactly how to reduce or get over the side effects of Ofev. I was on Ofev for more than two years taking 150mg twice a day. Then suddenly I started having loose motions. I had to stop ofev and am on pirfindone 801 for the last two years or so. My pfts are showing a steady decline but I don’t think any medicine can stop or bring some improvement in lung function after having contacted PF.
