What should I avoid while taking Pulmozyme?

While taking Pulmozyme, avoid leaving your medication out at room temperature. Pulmozyme needs to be stored in the refrigerator. Pulmozyme should be transported in a cooler or bag that keeps the medication between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit. It is also important to avoid adding other medication or liquid to Pulmozyme. Other medications can change how Pulmozyme affects your body. Do not mix Pulmozyme with any other liquid medication in your nebulizer. Also, never add water or other liquid to thin or dilute Pulmozyme. Pulmozyme should always be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
