I will be going to clinic this week and am trying to gather all of the articles for things I wanted to try or discuss trying with my CF doc. One of the things that I wanted to try was twice daily Pulmozyme. If I recall correctly, it showed improvement in those with an FEV1 of 75% or higher when being used twice a day. My last FEV1 was 72%, but I am hoping it will be higher due to the increased exercise I have been doing. Anyway, does anyone know where I can find that article. I have been looking but can't find it. Thanks in advance! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Go to page six under "Clinical Xxperiences" and it states that patients with an FVC>85% may benefit from BID dosing. I believe it also states this in the package insert in the pulmozyme box.

I wanna try BID pulmozyme also, but my doctor remains convinced that my insurance won't cover it. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border="0">

"Patients with baseline FVC>85% may also benefit from twice a day dosing (see Table 1). " Check out table 1 on the above link.
