Bramitob contains an antibiotic called tobramycin which helps fight chest infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Pseudomonas is a very common bacterium that infects nearly all patients with cystic fibrosis.1

FAQs for patients prescribed Bramitob
Cystic fibrosis (CF) and the lungs

In the video below, you will learn more about how CF affects the fluid that lines the airways and lungs. In patients with CF, there is a build-up of mucus in the airways which is thick and sticky. This traps germs which can lead to an infection. Antibiotics like Bramitob work to fight the germs that cause infection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Starting Bramitob

Bramitob is inhaled through a nebuliser on a daily basis.1 You should inhale the contents of one container in the morning and one in the evening. The space between the doses should be close to 12 hours.

The recommended treatment cycle is to use Bramitob twice a day for 28 days. You then have 28 days without taking your medicine before starting another 28-day treatment cycle.1 Keep taking Bramitob in this way until your doctor tells you to stop.

Always use this medicine exactly as your healthcare professional has told you. Check with your healthcare professional or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Storing Bramitob

You can store your Bramitob in a refrigerator (2-8ºC) or Bramitob bags (intact or opened) may be stored for up to 3 months at no more than 25ºC.1 Store your containers in the original packaging, in order to protect them from light.
