 2  pulmonary hypertension nausea, diarrhea, headache, jaw pain, muscle ache and fatigue Veletri is IV infusion medication--a person has a permanent IV port put in chest and wears a pump 24/7, permanently with this medication. While it does work on lowering and stabilizing pulmonary hypertension, the side effects are horrendous. I will be discussing switching to a different medication with my doctor at next appointment as the side effects have not lessened in the 2+ years I have been on the medication. Quality of life is becoming a real issue for me. F 60 2 years

VELETRI  (EPOPROSTENOL SODIUM):  This medication is used to treat high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension). It helps to increase your ability to exercise and improve 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. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
