Patent Claims: 1. A method of administering pirfenidone therapy to a patient in need thereof, comprising administering to the patient a therapeutically effective amount of pirfenidone while avoiding co-administration of a strong cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2) inhibitor, wherein said patient is also in need of therapy with a strong CYP1A2 inhibitor.
