This is best life-saving drug to Pulmonary Hypertension. I using Flolan since February 2001. I had jaw pain when I started eating, then it goes away when I continue eating. Rarely, I have been flushing or hot flashes up to 5 times per year. Yet, Flolan is very worth life-saver drug.

My daughter was diagnosed at age 5 with PH. We started out with just oral medication that was giving us no improvement, we moved to remodulion sub q pump and she couldn't do that either so we switched to Flolan and now 5 years later we finally received our 1st good report from Echo Test and Clinical Test. I am looking forward to the new Flolan that does not require to be on ice.

Comment:
Flolan was given to my husband in April 2008, but he was already getting close to end stage pulmonary hypertension. It seemed to help initially, but then an RN was told to administer a sleeping drug. He did so by interrupting the Flolan for about 5-6 minutes. This is unacceptable. Flolan must be given on a continuous basis. My husband may not have lived because of Flolan, but we know that he d ... Show Full Comment
