Ventavis is used to treat a type of high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension). Iloprost helps to increase your ability to exercise and improves symptoms such as shortness of breath and tiredness. It works by relaxing and widening the blood vessels (arteries) in the lungs and other parts of the body so that blood can flow more easily. Ventavis belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators.
How to Use Ventavis
Read the Patient Information Leaflet available from your pharmacist. Ventavis comes in a glass bottle (ampule). Follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to open the ampule and how to prepare each dose. Ventavis is used with a special breathing device (nebulizer). Ask your doctor, pharmacist or respiratory therapist how to inhale Ventavis properly with this equipment. Make sure you understand how to properly clean the nebulizer to prevent infections. Before using, check Ventavis visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Do not mix with other medications in the nebulizer. Inhale Ventavis by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually 6 to 9 times daily, at least 2 hours apart. Do not drink the solution. Do not get Ventavis on the skin or in your eyes. If this happens, rinse the area with water. The Dosage of Ventavis is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Use Ventavis regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. To avoid not being able to use your medication, be sure to have access to a back-up nebulizer in case your regular device stops working properly. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
Before using iloprost, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Ventavis may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Ventavis, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,low blood pressure, liver problems, kidney problems, bleeding problems, other breathing problems (such as asthma). Ventavis may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Ventavis should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Ventavis passes into breast milk. Because of the possible risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Ventavis is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Ventavis, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Iloprost may lower your blood pressure. Your doctor may also direct you to take other medications that may also lower your blood pressure (such as "water pills"/diuretics such as furosemide, ACE inhibitors such as captopril, calcium channel blockers such as nifedipine, other vasodilators such as nitrates). Your doctor may also prescribe "blood thinners" (such as warfarin) to prevent blood clots. Iloprost may increase your risk of bleeding if you take "blood thinners." Your doctor or pharmacist will monitor you for these possible drug interactions. Tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if you develop symptoms such as easy or unusual bleeding/bruising, severe dizziness, or fainting.
