Treatment Options for PAH*
Although there is no cure, there are several pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)* treatments available. You can work closely with your healthcare team to develop a treatment plan. PAH* is a progressive disease—meaning that it gets worse over time. That's why an early PAH* diagnosis is so important.
Several PAH* medications have been approved by the FDA to treat PAH*. You can work with your healthcare provider to determine which PAH* medication is appropriate for you.
Ventavis is one such approved PAH* medication. Ventavis is an inhaled form of the drug iloprost and is taken with the I-neb AAD system. The I-neb AAD system converts the medication into a fine mist that is breathed in.
Medications you may receive in addition to your PAH* treatment
Because it's a severe and chronic disease, the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension* can be complex. Many physicians prescribe medications for other conditions associated with PAH*.
Be sure to inform your healthcare provider of all the medications you are taking.
