Description of Letairis

Letairis is a medicine used in the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) which contains the active ingredient ambrisentan. Endothelins are proteins that increase blood pressure by constricting the blood vessels. Letairis works by blocking the release of this protein into the bloodstream.

Ambrisentan (as Letairis is generically called) is available in two different strengths: Letairis 5mg and Letairis 10mg oral tablets. The inactive constituents of this medicine are: lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium and magnesium stearate.

Indications & Dosage of Letairis

The primary function of Letairis is the treatment of pulmonary (artery) hypertension (or PAH) in adults. This disorder relates to extremely high blood pressure in the arteries connected to the lungs.

Letairis should be administered exactly as prescribed by the doctor. Dosages are highly individualized based on the requirements, medical history, and other medications of patients. However, Letairis can be initiated with 5mg tablets and eventually increased up to 10mg as per the doctor’s discretion.

Patients who buy Letairis should be very particular about not overdosing on this medicine. If such an incident occurs, emergency medical aid should be sought. Letairis tablets should be swallowed whole. This medicine should be stored at temperatures ranging between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius.
