Flolan didn't agree with me, but Remodulin is working so much better. I had extreme side effects with Flolan and with Remodulin I have only a few of the side effects!! 4/21/2011 at 08:18 AM

I migrated from IV Flolan to subcutaneous Remodulin 3 years after a dx of Pulmonary Hypertension. While Remodulin was effective at managing my PH symptoms, the side effects of the meds were very, very difficult to live with. I experienced significant pain at the site of infusion. Remodulin is administered with a mini-med pump and my infusion site would get hard, red and hot. Ultimately, I ended up using narcotics to manage the pain, and it was still very difficult to live with.5/26/2010 at 03:34 PM
