I've been on Opsumit since July '15.
If your question is, does Opsumit "work", here's my layman's opinion:
In 5 months it has alleviated some of the chest pain and has allowed me to walk a little farther with less severe pain and breathlessness (I'm on 2 liters of portable Oxy 24/7) than before.
Objectively, my cardio says Opsumit has lowered my heart pressure (as measured daily by an implanted St. Jude's CARDIO MEMS wireless WiFi transmitter). I was in 80-90 range, now often see 50-70. Our ideal goal would be a consistent 30.
Summary: At $300 a pill, Opsumit seems overrated to me. But if I reach the goal the cost was worth it.
Recommend: Googling Opsumit and its' chief competitors (Viagra etc.) so you can then ask your cardio informed questions. Ask flat out, 'Is this drug CORRECT for me'? WHY is it better than _______?
On the internet literature Opsumit is tauted as the "Latest and Greatest" PAH Rx. My mixed subjective results suggest I'm glad I'm not taking the less efficient drugs! If anything changes I'll get back to this Forum. Good Luck
