I too was diagnosed with pseudomonas after having MAIC two times. The first treatment for pseudomonas was a 14day Rx of Ciprofloxacin. I felt better immediately and the symptoms went away. Within 2 weeks of finishing my Rx the symptoms started to come back. My speutem was retested and I still had pseudomonas. I was prescribed the Tobymycin Inhaler for 30 days. I have very good insurance but my out of pocket was over $1000. It was worth every penny. The Tobymycin worked and I have been feeling major symptom free since I finished it May 2016.

@shiell and @tay4rake, this is really good information for our Mayo Connect .. especially the fact that inhaled Tobymycin worked when antibiotic pill form did not .. good info! Thank you both .. and good luck! Thanks for jumping in! Katherine

Healthwell is a charitable organization that helps with your co-pay if
you fall within a certain financial bracket. They helped pay for my tobramycin.
Am super grateful for it. I do donate voluntarily back to them some $$ to give
back and help replenish their funds. Hope this helps. Also, if any of you out
there want to donate to them, it is a tax deductible item. Plus, it helps many
people, especially those with Cystic Fibrosis.
