TOBI (Tobramycin Inhalation Solution, USP) is a prescription inhaled medication for cystic fibrosis patients whose lungs contain bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa. TOBI has not been studied in patients under 6 years of age, in those with a lung function outside of a certain range, or in those whose lungs contain bacteria called Burkholderia cepacia. Ask your doctor if TOBI is right for you.

There are a lot of us CF Bloggers (pre and post transplant) that currently use TOBI. It is one of the very few drugs that can treat the pseudomonas infections quite well.
