What is Opsumit?

Opsumit can help to improve your ability to exercise, improve your symptoms, and to slow down the development of the disease. Opsumit can also lower the chances of you being admitted to the hospital because of PAH.

Opsumit active ingredients
Opsumit works by blocking certain receptors in your body known as endothelin receptors. These receptors are normally involved in such processes as narrowing of blood vessels, thickening of the walls in the lungs, an increase in the speed and growth of cells, and swelling. In pulmonary arterial hypertension, the speed at which these processes occur is increased further, causing damage to the lungs. Macitentan has a long and strong effect on blocking the endothelin receptors.
Opsumit should be taken as prescribed by your doctor. Opsumit tablets should be taken whole and not crushed, chewed, or broken. Opsumit can be taken with or without food. You may need regular blood tests while taking Opsumit.
