Sun, Jun 7 3:32pm · Two bits of good news!! (and nebulizing with saline) in MAC & Bronchiectasis

Curious. I just noticed the title I used was changed. Who did it?

My doctors all said the same thing about .9% until Dr McShane sent me the article re the study. Several people here have posted that they order online, but Dr McShane doesn't trust the sterility of the drugs there. She sent a prescription for 100 vials of.9% to my preferred Walgreens. It was $16.15 with a goodrx coupon. Pretty cheap!

Thanks Don. This is more helpful than anything my ophthalmologist told me. Rita

Oh no. Did I miss the decimal point? Shame!

Does the 9% on itchy eyes help? I have blepharitis (inflamed eyelids) and dry eye. The ophthalmologist said to use artificial tears and warm compresses. I"m going to try the 9%. Thanks!

I agree 100%. Thanks for explaining it so well. Although, I am surprised that Thumper has gone back to .9% because he had such a difference in the amount he brought up when using 7%.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, even 3% causes me all kinds of bad breathing. I'm surprised and glad that so much is coming up with.9%. I do have some shortness of breath and discomfort after using it but it's bearable.

My picky lungs do not like anything nebulized. They didn't like Arikayce or nebulized levalbuteriol. They don't like wind, perfume, smoke, auto emissions, hot weather, cold weather and a whole bunch of other triggers. My lungs are very difficult!
