How Long Does it Take For Ofev to Start Working?

If you have idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a condition in which your lungs become thickened and stiff over time, Ofev can help reduce further scarring of the lungs. It also slows down the decline in lung function and your symptoms over time.

Your doctor will tell you when to start and stop taking Ofev. It is important to take it exactly as your doctor tells you. It is taken twice a day, 12 hours apart, with food. Patients have reported that setting alarms on their phones to remind them of their doses helps them stay on track with this medication.

This medicine may pass into breast milk and could cause serious side effects in a breastfeeding baby. Do not breastfeed while you take Ofev.

You should not take Ofev if you are allergic to this medicine or any of the ingredients in it. You should not take it if you have had recent surgery in your stomach area or if you have diverticular disease, which is a condition that causes pouches that bulge out from the wall of the large intestine.

It is not known if Ofev works in children.

If you have any of these side effects, call your doctor right away. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant. This medicine is not safe to use while you are pregnant.
