What is Pulmonary Hypertension?
Pulmonary hypertension is characterized by high blood pressure in the blood vessels leading from the lungs to the heart. Some forms of pulmonary hypertension can be progressive and lead to worsening heart failure over time, which can become life-threatening.
Pulmonary hypertension can develop slowly enough that the signs go unnoticed for years, but eventually, shortness of breath, fatigue, swelling of the ankles and legs, dizziness, chest pressure, and other symptoms begin to affect one’s quality of life.
How Do Different Types of Pulmonary Hypertension Medications Work?
Although there currently is no cure for pulmonary hypertension, there are several different classes of medications that help manage symptoms and slow disease progression.
Vasodilators improve blood flow by opening up constricted blood vessels. Some vasodilators, such as Flolan and Veletri, are administered continuously through a wearable pump, while others are taken orally, injected, or inhaled through a nebulizer.
Other types of medications for pulmonary hypertension also open up the blood vessels in the lungs and between the lungs and heart, but they do so in different ways. Some increase the level of nitric oxide in the body, make the heart beat more strongly, eliminate excess fluid from the body, block the action of substances that constrict the blood vessels, and thin the blood.
Some of the older medications used to treat pulmonary hypertension, such as diuretics and blood thinners, aren’t particularly expensive. However, newer treatments like Flolan and Veletri can be costly enough that even well-insured patients can have trouble covering their copays. Maintaining an uninterrupted supply of the prescription drugs they need is necessary for ensuring a reasonable quality of life.
Here at Simplefill, we know that pulmonary hypertension copay assistance is available, but many people who need it are unaware of that.
