I am just starting the process (unfortunatley), and had my first dose of the triple ABT therapy. yesterday.  I am trying to organize myself as there is so much to do. Today I was sorting out what type of air purifier to get. There are so many...  If anyone has any suggesitons, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks.

Judy .

Any suggestions?

      Hi John,

      My Diagnosis is bronchiectasis 

      The three Antibiotics I am taking:  Azithromycin, Ethambutol, Rifampin......

      Hopefully it won't be too bad.. this will be my first full week on them... I have to take them for 18 months.

      Thank you

      Keep in touch and let us know how you get on.

      Why 18 months if I can ask?

      After that?

      Apologies for the zealous curiosity

      Good Luck

      John

    I was just going to ask the same thing. I was thinking something something tobramycin? Antibiotic IV therapy?

    As for purifiers, I am dying for a Dyson, but I have never had one.

      Thanks Jenny.

      YOu were close.. ABT- antibioitic therapy but not IV.. 

      It is confusing to figure out what to get. They say avoid air purifiers that  produce ozone or ionizers that generate ions  or electrostatic precipitators as they are lung irritants.

      I will chekc out Dyson.

      I will keep you posted!

      Thanks.

      Oh yes, please do. I haven't been given any advice with air purifiers, clearly you are in the know!
