Rits. Thanks , Rita. I’ll keep you posted. Try not to be discouraged. I have a good feeling for both of us!
Best to you,
I started the Arikayce July 23. The training from the nurse and support from the pharmacy was great. I took it for 7 days. During that time I too coughed up the gunk after treatment and coughed more than I had before treatment. The third day i began with hoarseness and then completely lost my voice. My pulmonary dr wanted me to try to continue but after 7 days he decided I needed to stop. I have been off the Arikayce now for 4 days. Not coughing as much but still have no voice at all. As I understand it about half of the people in the trials had the voice problem so I was not surprised. Just hoping it is temporary. I do not think at this point thqt my Dr will put me back on it. He is trying to get me an appointment with a MAC specialist. I do feel that if I could have continued the treatment it would have helped. Just need to decide if I can live without talking….HA
