More Good Days Start With Orenitram
What is Orenitram?
You may already be taking other oral medicines for your PAH, but Orenitram works differently. Orenitram is an oral prostacyclin medicine that mimics the effects of prostacyclin, a natural substance found in your body that opens up blood vessels so it’s easier for your heart to pump blood through your lungs.
Orenitram has been proven to help delay the progression of PAH and may help improve symptoms. These benefits may help you reach your treatment goals.
Adding Orenitram may help make sure you don’t miss out on the benefits of treating your PAH with a prostacyclin medicine—and that you’re able to capture more good days.
Orenitram is the tablet form of the same proven and trusted type of medicine that has been available as a pump therapy for more than 18 years.

May help patients do more and help control PAH
In clinical studies, adding Orenitram helped patients improve in several ways in as little as 3 months:
9 out of 10 patients improved or maintained their ability to do more daily activities with fewer symptoms, as measured by functional class*
Decreased shortness of breath during daily activities*
Reduced strain on their heart—that means your heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood to your lungs*
Increased their ability to walk farther, as measured by 6-minute walk distance test†
May help improve risk status*
Patients taking Orenitram either improved or maintained their risk status—and improvement was seen as early as 3 months. In fact, more than 30% of patients improved and were able to maintain improvement through week 60.
Your healthcare provider may use risk status to make decisions about your treatment. It helps them determine how you’re doing today and predict how you will be doing in the future.
To determine your risk status, your healthcare provider may use a calculation that combines many factors, including some measures you may be familiar with, such as:
- 6-minute walk distance test
- Functional class
- Strain on the heart, as measured by NT-proBNP
Because Orenitram can help lower your risk status, adding it to your treatment plan may help you capture more good days.
