Is this drug covered by Medicare RX coverage? ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? Perfenidone is most commonly used to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

However, your pharmacy should be able to tell you. Alternatively, you could call Medicare and check. Does anyone know about this?

AND WILL IT HURT HIM????? ## Hi Jackie, Sorry to hear about what happened to your husband while working. Did you think he ingested a fair amount of that road salt? I know if it were me that position, I would probably be downing a lot of green vegetable drinks directly afterwards as well as getting some "activated charcoal" from a health food store, since it's medically proven to eliminate toxins from the body. And while there's probably no way of knowing whether the road salt will hurt him at this time (depending on how much was consumed), if he senses anything unusual it may even be best for him to go see a d...

How are you> These contain 20mgs of Omeprazole, with is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. That said, if it the bottle was opened 2 years, like an over the counter bottle or in a bottle that was dispensed by your pharmacy, then they expired one year from that time.
