Hi all, this is only my second post. A few weeks ago my dad was diagnosed with IPF and has been taking Acetylcysteine for about 5 weeks now. Yesterday he saw the consultant and his breathing test showed an improvement from 2litres to 2.5l. He's on oxygen for a while each morning and his sats were 100%.
I just wanted to give others out there that might be newly diagnosed some hope that in some people this medication works really well.
