Cromolyn Sodium back

I know not many CFer's take cromolyn sodium, but for those who do, it's back in pharmacies!!!

Teva pharmaceuticals began production about 4 weeks ago and meds should be in pharmacies. Teva sad to try Walgreens first.

How to prevent 2ndary infections while in the hospital

Hey guys,

As we all know, we're suseptable to picking up 2ndary infections while in the hospital just trying to get our original infection under control.

The WSJ today had an article talking about superbugs, but gave a great web site to inform patients on how to be [B] proactive [/B], my fav word, to prevent 2ndary infections.

"After the deaht of their 27-year-old son, Josh, linked to a gram negative bacterium, Victoria and Armando Nahum started a non-profit group to raise awareness of pevention. Their group promotes steps each patient can take in hospitals."


The site looks a bit "commercially" instead of "non-profit-y" at least in my opinion, but rest assured it is a non-profit with the aim of helping the most vulnerable of patients such as us CFer's.
