Letairis Drug Information
Ambrisentan is used to treat high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension). This condition is thought to be caused by increased levels of a certain natural substance (endothelin-1). Letairis blocks the effects of endothelin-1, thereby helping to decrease the blood pressure in the lungs, slow the worsening of symptoms, and improve your ability to exercise.
Letairis must not be used during pregnancy because it can harm an unborn baby. See also Precautions section. For female patients to receive Letairis, all doctors, pharmacists, and female patients must agree to, understand, and carefully follow the requirements of the Ambrisentan Shared System or PS-Ambrisentan Shared System REMS Programs. These requirements apply in the United States. If you live in Canada or any other country, consult your doctor and pharmacist for your country's regulations. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details about these programs and about the risks and benefits of using Letairis.
How to Use Letairis
Letairis is controlled through a special program. A program worker will call you each month to make sure that you have gotten a pregnancy test if you are a woman who may become pregnant. See also Warning and Precautions sections. Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using ambrisentan and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Take Letairis by mouth with or without food, usually once daily or as directed by your doctor. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablets. The Dosage of Letairis is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Use Letairis regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. Do not stop taking Letairis without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased. Women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle the tablets or breathe the dust from Letairis. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Before taking ambrisentan, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other endothelin receptor blockers (e.g., bosentan); or if you have any other allergies. Letairis may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Letairis, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver disease, certain lung conditions (pulmonary fibrosis), anemia.

If you are planning pregnancy, become pregnant, or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Women who may become pregnant must have a negative pregnancy test before starting Letairis, once a month while taking it, and for 1 month after stopping the medication. Consult your doctor for more details and to discuss reliable forms of birth control. Unless otherwise directed by your doctor, it is recommended that at least 2 reliable forms of birth control (e.g., birth control pills, condoms) be used while taking Letairis and for 1 month after stopping the medication. Birth control should still be used, even if your partner had a vasectomy. It is not known whether Letairis passes into breast milk. Because of the possible risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Letairis is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Letairis, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
