In brief: Depends
There can be a lot of variation to how CF affects a person, and the medicines and treatments have to be carefully selected by your team of medical pros.
Individual needs vary. Maybe antibiotics - by mouth or by iv, bronchodilators, mucolytics, anti-inflammatory, steroids, vitamins, zinc, pancreatic enzyme treplacements, chest physiotherapy, or more! http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/cys.
