5 Questions to Ask Your Healthcare Providers If You Have Pulmonary Fibrosis

Can a treatment clash with my medication?
The short answer is yes, it can. It’s key you communicate with your healthcare providers to ensure this doesn’t happen. Always keep your team updated with all medications you’re taking regularly, even things you might not think are relevant, like over-the-counter medication or vitamins. This will help your doctors make sure there are no harmful interactions with your medication.

Should I enroll in a clinical trial?
Choosing if you should or should not enroll in a clinical trial will depend on many factors, including whether or not there are any other treatment choices available to you. If you’re interested, your healthcare provider will talk to you about the nitty-gritty of getting involved in a clinical trial. Are there any occurring in your area? Are they the right fit for you? Do you have other options? Is your current condition compatible with it? These are all things you will need to discuss with your medical team before you sign up.
