What is Uptravi?
Uptravi is a medication prescribed to adults to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), which is high blood pressure in the vessels inside your lungs. Those that suffer from it will experience constricting and narrowing (sometimes blocking and damage) of the vessels inside their lungs. When this occurs, blood pressure in the lungs increases, reducing oxygen levels.
PAH can make you feel short of breath and can cause chest pain, fatigue, heart palpitations, and fainting. It can make it harder for you to exercise or perform other physical activities. Unfortunately, there is no cure for PAH. While it often gets progressively worse, Uptravi can help you to manage it and lessen the symptoms.
The medication is taken as an oral tablet and helps to relax the muscle tissue in the blood vessels inside your lungs. This can help to open the arteries up, reducing blood pressure, and improving how much oxygen you can take into your blood. This can reduce your symptoms of PAH and slow the development of the disease.
Uptravi active ingredients
The active ingredient in Uptravi is called selexipag. It helps to relax and widen the blood vessels in your lungs, reducing blood pressure and increasing oxygen absorption. When you take Uptravi, the active ingredient selexipag is absorbed in your bloodstream. It travels to the blood vessels in your lung where it attaches to areas on the surface of the muscle tissue called prostacyclin receptors. This activates the receptors and they trigger a process that relaxes the muscle tissue.
Uptravi side effects & Uptravi drug interactions
The most common side effects experienced by people that take Uptravi include:
- Feeling sick (nausea)
- Being sick (vomiting)
- Decreased appetite

In rare instances, Uptravi can cause more serious side effects, including:

Uptravi can interact with other medications, including:
- Any other medications taken to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension
- Strong CYP2C8 inhibitors medications taken to lower your blood fat levels (cholesterol and lipids), like statins, fibrates, or niacin
Speak to your physician if you are taking these medications as they could impact the effectiveness of Uptravi and increase the severity of some side effects.
