Reviews for Sildenafil

Anonymous · Taken for 5 to 10 years · July 1, 2020

Revatio (sildenafil): “Revatio was prescribed by my Pulmonary doctor for PAH. A miracle drug that helped me breathe better, I was able to exercise and felt great. After changing insurance carriers I am no longer able to get Revatio and I can tell how my body feels lethargic and I have spells of hard to breathe all day long now. Sad but health care and insurance don't go hand in hand to help us that actually need this med as it is extremely expensive. My 90 day supply of 10mg 3 times a day med cost almost 3,000.00 but my co pay was only 60.00. Since I lost that insurance I can no longer get Revatio.”

Revatio (sildenafil): “I've taken this medicine for a little over a year and the results have been wonderful. No side effects. It's hard to put into words how much it has improved my quality of life. Unfortunately, the copay is now too high and I will have to stop taking it.”

Revatio (sildenafil): “I have been on Revatio for two years now. Started with two pills (40mg) three times a day and have worked up to the max of four pills (80mg) three times a day. At first I did get the nasal congestion but now everything is normal. I am also on Letaris and warfarin. ”

“I took Sildenafil (Revatio) for nine years and believe it kept me alive and breathing all that time. My pulmonologist retired in 2015, the new pulmonologist prescribed Adcirca due to it staying in the blood system longer. Now I have been switched to generic Sildenafil, taking one 20MG tab three times a day. I will be checking to see if there is a generic Adcirca.”

“My mom has been on this medication for 3 months. It has improved breathing, but she still has some breathing issues when walking long distances. She is also experiencing severe back pain to the point it is difficult for her to move.”

Revatio (sildenafil): “I have been taking it for 6 years 25 mg x 3 times a day. And now 40 mg x 3 times a day. It has helped me without having any side effects. But I might have to add another treatment to it pretty soon. But I'm not sure which one I should try. Any advice?”
