Hi

Has anyone had the opportunity to take iloprost in a tablet form? I know it's available but expensive.

Hi Catherine,

 

I've never taken Iloprost so can't advise you from my own experience and I'm afraid I've been unable to find any information about the drug in tablet form. There is a link to Ilprost which may give you some more information, but it seems to deal with infusions of the medication, not tablets.

 

Sorry I can't give you more help, although we may have other members who can give you some first hand advice.

 

Kind regards,

Hello Catherine

 

I remember hearing it was not as effective as IV Iloprost but no more than that. What do you want to take it for, Raynaud's?

 

Take care.
