Was on bosentan (Tracleer) and doing well, switched to Opsumit and went downhill. Extremely fatigued, short of breath, no energy. Switched back to Tracleer and feeling much better. Do not recommend this medication.

My mother is on 8 liters oxygen with pulmonary hypertension. Today, she did an echo and her pulmonary hypertension is completely gone! Side effects, low hemoglobin, blood transfusion (once). It doesn't magically make your copd go away, but has helped her tremendously.

I discontinued opsumit after less than a week due to an increased difficulty breathing, rapid pulse, chest pain, irregular heartbeat and a decrease in blood pressure. I'm not sure why my dr prescribed this medication to me since all accomplished was making me feel worse which was about the last thing I need.

I wrote a review on Opsumit in Feb of 2015 on this website at which time I had been on it a few months, now I have been on Opsumit 3 years. I feel worse than ever. Pulmonologist states my PAH has NOT gotten worse since diagnosed in 2011 yet I am bed ridden with chest pain, severe dizziness, nausea and horrible headaches. I am in the process of testing(sleep study, echocardiogram)im order for him to change me back to Tracleer and give that drug another shot. At least on Tracleer I could walk a little. I feel my best each evening about 2 hours before taking my daily dose of Opsumit and then go downhill after I take it...leading me to believe this medicine 3 doctors in Phoenix AZ rave about is making me sicker. I DO NOT recommend this medicine although everyone's body is different so what doesn't work for some might be a blessing for another. I wish you all well on this journey with PAH...I sure know how rough it can be especially being alone with no living family.
