A Southern California native, I was on my third winter in Northern Arizona when I began having trouble breathing. Always very healthy so I attributed it to the 7000 feet elevation at which I lived, lack of snow shoveling stamina, and wearing layers of heavy clothes as the cause of tightness in my chest. When I couldn't take 5 steps without becoming exhausted and stopping to rest, I got scare...

I just recently change to the generic Letaris 3 months ago from India Pharmacy bonhoa.com after two years brand one due to the brand one too much expensive. It seems works the same. there is No medication compares to ambrisentan, it was a miracle for my pulmonary hypertension. I wish I could still take it, God bless all of you.

I live in a midwest univ. town, generally the air quality is very good. I have had congenital eisenmenger's syndrome, which probably has led to PAH in later years. Over the last few years, I had difficulty in walking more than 500 yards without getting out of breath, what to speak of gardening or cleaning around the house. About three years ago, I was referred to a pulmonologist at WashU, who ran several tests including V/Q, stress/walk tests and ultrasound, and cardiologist performed RHC etc. Pulmonologist prescribed Letairis, and Spirva Inhaler, and since then I have felt much better by God's Grace; and now I walk an average 7 miles daily, without getting out of breath. I also can take 1-2 flight of stairs without getting excessively out of breath. I take supplemental oxygen during the night. I have traveled overseas regularly and participated in very ardous and physically demanding activities. I have worked as an academic full-time all along. All of this has resulted in reinforced self-esteem and remain hopeful.

A Southern California native, I was on my third winter in Northern Arizona when I began having trouble breathing. Always very healthy so I attributed it to the 7000 feet elevation at which I lived, lack of snow shoveling stamina, and wearing layers of heavy clothes as the cause of tightness in my chest. When I couldn't take 5 steps without becoming exhausted and stopping to rest, I got scared and went to the doctor. MANY doctors and tests later and very near death, I was referred to a Pulmonary specialist at UCSD. I made the trip hooked up to oxygen but my condition improved so much at the lower elevation, that within 24 hours I was off oxygen and have not needed it since. I was diagnosed with Class 2 PAH and was selected to participate in a clinical study and research of a new drug. Four years later, the drug Letairis was approved. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is a disease that I will always have. I now live very active in the desert, elevation 245 feet, I feel great and I take Letairis daily. I'm grateful that with this medication I can live a normal and active life and feel very proud to have participated in the research of Letairis. Thank you
