Bosentas 125 mg
Bosentas is used in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension (high pressure in the blood vessels of lungs). Bosentas relaxes the blood vessels of the lungs, which in turn lowers the blood. Bosentas is an endothelin receptor antagonist, prescribed for pulmonary atrial hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs). Bosentas blocks the effects of endothelin-1 thereby decreases blood pressure in lungs. Bosentas also inhibits blood vessel thickening.
Bosentas is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). It improves your ability to exercise and prevents your condition from getting worse.
