Proper medication use is extremely important in Cystic Fibrosis.

The following medication list is not meant to be comprehensive but does include the most commonly prescribed medications used in the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis.
Multiple factors can affect our use of medications. Speak with your pharmacist if there are any barriers that may prevent you from properly taking your medications.
