How far might Adempas take you?
Adempas can help increase your ability to walk farther (measured by a 6-minute walking distance [6MWD] test), improve some of your symptoms, and help slow down the worsening of your physical condition.
Worsening of physical condition includes death, heart/lung transplant, a surgery to reduce pressure in your lung, hospitalization for worsening of pulmonary hypertension (PH), start of a new PAH-specific treatment, continued decline in your ability to exercise (measured by a 6MWD test) and some of your symptoms.
A 12-week study of 443 adults with PAH (WHO Group 1) showed that patients who took Adempas walked farther during the 6MWD test compared to patients who did not take Adempas.
A 6MWD test determines how far you can walk in 6 minutes. Your doctor may use it periodically to measure any differences in your progress.
Change in 6-minute walking distance at the end of 12 weeks.
Will your doctor prescribe other medications with Adempas?
Adempas can be taken alone or together with endothelin receptor antagonists or prostanoids,
which are medications your doctor may also prescribe for PAH.
Don’t have PAH?
See how Adempas helps with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) (WHO Group 4) that is either inoperable or recurrent/persistent after surgery.
