    Hi. My husband has Pulmonary Fibrosis for a long time and has been on Esbriet. I am hoping that there will be new drugs somewhere in the near future or clinical trials. He is ineligible to get a lung transplant because it would be too risky.

    • Hi Beatrice,

      Welcome to the PF forums – glad you’re here and thanks for sharing a bit about your husband. Has he been tolerating the Esbriet okay? I don’t have any experience with it as I am on the other anti-fibrotic drug, Ofev, but I know lots of people do well on both drugs. Yes, wouldn’t it be so nice to see some new drugs available for those of us living with this disease? Sorry to hear of his ineligibility for lung transplant. I can’t officially endorse it on the forums, because I’ve never tried it: but have a read through the laser therapy thread on this site if you get a chance. Maybe your husband could try that?

      Take care,
