What medicines are there for pulmonary hypertension (PH)?

There are several kinds of medications that can help people who have PH. These medications work in different ways, but all of them try to dilate (relax) the pulmonary arteries.

Right now there isn’t a cure that takes away PH completely. This is why PH research is so important! Thanks to PH research, doctors have developed 12 medications for PH in the last ten years. The more research we can do, the closer we will get to understanding why people get PH, developing even better treatments, and ultimately finding a cure.
