Welcome to Connect @turtle3656. Thank you for posting these useful resources, which a couple of members have also recommended.

Tell us a bit more about you. Do you live with lung disease? NTM, COPD, bronchiectasis? We look forward to getting to know you more.

@colleenyoung and the Rest of the Group!

Hi, my name is Amy. I am currently 48 years old. I have been on the 3 big antibiotics (Clarithromycin, Ethambutol, Rifampin) for almost two years now. My last sputum sample was Dec 19th, 2018 and I was just told that it was positive again. I was wondering if anyone else has done anything if there meds were not helping? I was very interested in what @lauralynn said about her clinical trials where she cleared her NTM after 6 years, plus of being on meds. Does anyone know what drug she inhaled, or any other drug to inhale that will help this go away? I also may need to look to switch my doctors. I live in Caseyville, Illinios, outside of St. Louis by 30 minutes. Thank you for any help anyone is able to give.
