      Yesterday a PH News article shared some exciting news. he FDA has approved the Tyvaso DPI formula for PH and PH related to interstitial lung disease (ILD). Tyvaso DPI is the only dry powder formula.

      You can read the article here. Some of the highlights are below.

      * Only dry powder formula
      * Smaller inhaler
      * Fits in the palm of your hand
      * Efficient prostacyclin dosing
      * Tyvaso and Tyvaso DPI only two to treat PH-ILD

      If you’re on Tyvaso or another prostacyclin, has your doctor mentioned switching you to Tyvaso DPI? If not, do you plan to ask about it?

        Hi @carol-alexander, you made me smile big as I saw your post. 😀

        How are you doing? I know it must be challenging after losing your husband recently. I’ve been thinking about you, my PHriend.

        When will you see your PH doctor again to ask about this new form of Tyvaso? I hope you and others can switch to it because it sounds much more convenient.

      Hi @carol-alexander, that’s excellent news. I’m so excited for you, too, and can’t wait to hear how you like it better. It sounds promising, too.

      How was your Echo? Did he say anything about that, or was this before the Echo? Thanks so much for sharing your exciting news with us. I’m sending you love, hugs, and prayers from San Diego.

      Hi @carol-alexander, have you started the new Tyvaso DPI yet? You’ve been on my mind. I hope that you are doing well and taking care of yourself.

      Remember, it’s OK to ask for help and accept help.
