Hello everyone. My Dad has been diagnosed with IPF about two and a half yrs ago. His symptoms are shortness of breathe if he does too much (which can be walking up the driveway slowly) and a hacking cough trying to get up the Phlegm. This is the worst to watch. He may not cough for hrs on end but when he does, it is so scary b/c it goes on for one to two minutes....quite violent. My Dad says he has to get the phlegm up. Does any of your loved ones or do any of you experience this and if so, have you tried any meds or any techniques that have helped control the pleghm? My Dad has only tried the over the counter meds and nothing works. He is is n-acetyl cysteine since a year ago. Bu that is all. Thank you for your input. We love our Dad, we want to help manage the symptoms as best as we can!
