Iloprost Drug Information

Medication Information: Pulmonary hypertension is a rare disease caused by high blood pressure in the arteries that enter the lungs. Iloprost acts like a natural chemical in the body called prostacyclin. Prostacyclin relaxes blood vessels, and this mechanism causes the arteries to dilate. This process lowers blood pressure in the lungs and facilitates blood circulation. This process provides more blood to the lungs, resulting in less pressure on the heart.

 

Contraindications to the use of iloprost

  • Pay attention to the expiration date of Iloprost and do not take it if your medicine has expired.
  • Never give iloprost to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.
  • Do not take Iloprost more than the dose prescribed by your doctor.
  • Check for drug interactions with iloprost and be sure to tell your doctor what other medications you are taking.

 

Iloprost drug interaction

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal products) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Iloprost may lower blood pressure. Your doctor may prescribe other medicines that lower your blood pressure with iloprost (such as "water pills" / diuretics such as furosemide, ACE inhibitors such as captopril, calcium channel blockers such as nifedipine, and other vasodilators such as nitrates). He or she may also prescribe a "blood thinner" (such as warfarin) to prevent blood clots. If iloprost is used in combination with a blood thinner, it may increase the risk of bleeding. See a doctor right away if you have symptoms such as unusual bleeding, bruising, dizziness, or fainting.

 

Tips to consider before taking Iloprost

Some medications can not be prescribed under certain conditions, and some medications may be prescribed if additional treatment is needed. Therefore, it is best for your doctor to know the following before taking iloprost:

  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • If you have liver disease.
  • If you have angina or heart valve defects or have had a heart attack before.
  • If you have lung problems such as asthma or a lung infection.
  • If you have recently had a stroke or ischemic attack (mild stroke).
  • If you are at risk of bleeding, for example if you have recently been injured.
  • If you are currently taking certain medications. These include all available medicines, whether prescribed or used by your doctor, such as herbal medicines and supplements.
  • If you have ever been allergic to any medication.

 

Possible side effects of iloprost

All medications, along with their positive effects, can cause unwanted side effects in the body. However, these complications do not occur in all people. Over time, your body will adjust to the new medicine and these symptoms will go away, but if the following symptoms persist or become painful, consult your doctor.

  • Feeling bored: Eat simple foods and avoid high-fat and spicy foods.
  • Hot flashes and redness of the face, chest, jaw, face, cough, diarrhea, urticaria, increased bleeding: Tell your doctor if any of these are a problem.
