6 Cystic Fibrosis Treatments and Therapies



3. Medications

Medications are prescribed to help with the symptoms of CF. Some include:

  • Antibiotics to clear infections.
  • Mucus thinners to help the mucus build-up drain easier.
  • Nebulizers to turn medicines into mists to be inhaled directly into the lungs.
  • CFTR modulator therapies that help to correct the protein in the faulty CTFR gene. The two most common drugs for this purpose are Orkambi and Kalydeco.
