Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Recently US FDA approved Perfinodone for the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis.
Perfinodone is anti fibrotic drug. It revert the fibrosis in the early pulmonary fibrosis.
So you can try Perfinodone.
Dose is 200mg thrice daily.
Another drug is N acetyl cystine (NAC).
It is mucolytic and anti oxidant drug which is useful in fibrosis.
Try these drugs and see for any improvement.
If you fail to improve then lung transplant is the only option.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
