Think of Symdeko as Similar to Kalydeco or Orkambi for Cystic Fibrosis

The new cystic fibrosis med Symdeko (SIM-deh-koh, tezacaftor/ivacaftor) will put focus on dispensing "CFTR modulators."

Think of Symdeko as similar to Orkambi (lumacaftor/ivacaftor) and Kalydeco (ivacaftor). They all help thin out mucus in the lungs and other organs...by partially fixing a damaged protein.

Help prevent mishaps when patients are admitted on CFTR modulators.
