Disposing of Your Medicine
Discarding medicine safely can prevent medicine misuse.
Medicines for pulmonary hypertension (PH) include tablets or capsules taken by mouth, continuous infusions given subcutaneously or intravenously (IV), and inhalations via nebulizer. It is very important that you do not run out of these medicines and do not miss any of your doses. Also, make sure all your doctors know you are on these medicines. Sometimes these medicines require special monitoring, interact with other medicines, or require advanced planning prior to procedures, tests, or imaging.
Once you’re diagnosed with PAH, you’ll work closely with your doctor to make a treatment plan that is made just for you. The plan will include taking medications on a regular basis.
There are several types of medications used to treat PAH.
