    This medication has improved my ability to breath, but just as the numerous side effects become a little less debilitating, I have to increase my dose because my breathing has worsened again.

    I was diag. with PH in 2005, started with Flolan, which saved my life. I continued with Flolan until Feb. 2011, when I switched to Veletri. The advantage of not dealing with ice packs really freed me from having to deal with having to watch where I was when it was time to change them out. Veletri is just as effective as Flolan but comes with the same side effects, Jaw pain and foot pain.

    I have noticed a significant improvement in my quality of life. I am not easliy winded. I could only take a few steps prior to going on Veletri. It is somewhat time consuming but you get used to it.

    I think there are more side effects to this medicine than the makers or doctors really know. However this is a really good medicine that is effective.
