Sildenafil (Revatio) and Tadalafil (Adcirca) are sometimes used to treat pulmonary hypertension. Sildenafil and its compounds have been found to improve exercise ability and reduce clinical disease progression in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Tadalafil, marketed under the name Adcirca, is used to treat patients with PAH as it also can improve exercising ability. Both of these medications are used to open the blood vessels in the lungs and as a result, they allow blood to flow through more easily.
