DESCRIPTION

Pirfenox tablets contain the active substance pirfenidone which is used for the treatment of mild-to-moderate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in adults. IPF is a condition in which the tissues of lungs become swollen and scarred over time and, as a result, it becomes difficult to breathe deeply. This makes it hard for the lungs to work properly. Pirfenox helps to reduce scarring and swelling in the lungs and helps the patient to breathe better.
