Pah patient · Taken for less than 1 month March 29, 2019

“My experience was not good. Took my first dose on a Friday night and 2 hours later my heart raced and felt shaky for about 4 hours. Saturday night, same thing. Decided to try taking it in the morning instead so waited till Monday morning. Two hours later my throat closed off, was gasping and shaking uncontrollably, almost passed out. Lasted a couple of minutes and subsided and then went the full cycle again. Suffered at least a dozen of those episodes in 4 hours and was hospitalized. I will never take it again as I feel I was lucky to be able to come out of the reaction as well as I have”

Adcirca (tadalafil): “No change in pulmonary function tests after 3 months, plus severe edema, so I also had to take a strong diuretic that had to be planned so I would not be stranded without a bathroom, lots of peeing for 6 hours.”

Adcirca (tadalafil): “I didn't like this medicine at first. I had headaches, and had some symptoms of depression. These problems went away after two weeks of regular use. I cannot rate it against other such medicines because Adcira is the only such medicine I have used.”

Adcirca (tadalafil): “I had been tried on almost everything. I had bad reactions...horrible really, to opsumit and letairis. I've been taking adcirda now for a year and I feel good. I had absolutely no side effects with it.”

Adcirca (tadalafil): “When I started taking Adcirca for pulmonary hypertension I experienced hallucinations and intense exhaustion. I stayed sleepy; I hardly spent any time awake the first two weeks I took this medication. After the first two weeks of taking Adcirca, the hallucinations and intense sleepiness went away. However, approximately a week after I started taking this medication I began having vivid nightmares and disorientation. I have been taking Adcirca for about two years and still suffer from the nightmares and disorientation. I have also experienced some of the more common side effects, such as; Flushing, Muscle Aches and Dizziness. As for the Pulmonary Hypertension, I have not experienced any noticeable changes.”

Adcirca (tadalafil): “The side effects are giving me trouble, especially the headaches and nasal congestion, but I hope that my body will get used to them. I can't get my liver transplant without getting the pressure down.”

Adcirca (tadalafil): “Take adcirca and Opsumit for PAH for 18 months now. Pressures have decreased substantially and heart function dramatically improved. Can't take two drugs at the same time and adcirca must be taken with food and infrequently makes me a little nauseated. Have zofran on hand. Rarely a little light-headed especially during summer heat.”
