Best advice for PF symptom management

I started taking Ofev, 150mg twice daily, on October 12th.  So far, no adverse reactions.  Surprisingly, my coughing – both dry and productive – has significantly subsided as of this morning.  I had been “living” with Hall’s cough drops, hot tea with honey & lemon, pineapple juice (which had no effect on reducing my cough as some have noted), and water.  This morning, I awoke with no hacking cough and this has persisted, for which I am very grateful.  I don’t know if Ofev is the cause of this cessation, but I’m delighted it’s happening.  Keeping my fingers crossed for its continuance, I wish you all good health.

Are you currently taking an anti-fibrotic medication?
