These changes are irreversible and the affected person may experience shortness of breath or dry cough as initial symptoms. Fibnib 150mg Soft Gelatin Capsule kills or stops the growth of cancer cells and also prevents the multiplication of cancer cells. You may experience some bothersome side effects. Discuss with your doctor if you have any doubts.
