Robert Morrison

Short Bio

I spent 66 years believing I was Scottish. Ancestry DNA testing indicated I actually was Irish. And interestingly I never liked Scotch whisky and do’t like Irish whiskey.

Type of Diagnosis

IPF

Current medication regimen

150 mg Ofev every twelve hours

Supplemental Oxygen

yes

Best advice for PF symptom management

Use supplemental oxygen more than you think you need it. Avoid hot humid days i.e., stay indoors with air conditioning, especially when air quality is not good. Walk at your own personal pace – don’t try to keep up with faster walkers. Stop and rest on occasion when out shopping, visiting museums, etc. Ask your doctor about switching to Ofev if your sun sensitivity is problematic using Esbriet. I winter in Florida and switching to Ofev was extremely helpful. And finally (tongue in cheek) don’t ever walk up two flights of stairs at one time.

Are you currently taking an anti-fibrotic medication?

yes
