Ambrisentan (5mg)
AMBRISTAR is a medication used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in the lungs and heart. It works by blocking the action of a protein called endothelin, which is involved in the constriction of blood vessels in the lungs.
AMBRISTAR is available in tablet form, and the usual recommended dose is 5 mg taken once daily, with or without food. The dosage and duration of treatment may vary depending on the individual's condition and response to the medication.
AMBRISTAR is generally well-tolerated, but it may cause side effects such as headache, dizziness, and nasal congestion. In rare cases, it may cause more serious side effects such as liver problems, fluid retention, or decreased red blood cell count.
AMBRISTAR should not be used in pregnant women or women who may become pregnant, as it may cause harm to the developing fetus. It should also be used with caution in individuals with liver or kidney disease, and it may interact with other medications, so it is important to speak with a healthcare provider before using AMBRISTAR, especially if there are any underlying medical conditions or if other medications are being taken. Regular monitoring of liver function and blood counts may be required during treatment with AMBRISTAR.
