Adempas 

Indication

Adempas (Riociguat) belongs to the class of medications called soluble guanylate cyclase stimulators. It works to reduce the blood pressure in the lungs by opening the blood vessels that connect the heart to the lungs. It is used to treat adults with Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) where surgery is not possible and with CTEPH that continues or has returned after surgery. It is also used to treat adults who have Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), either alone or in combination with other medications.

CTEPH is a rare illness that is caused by Blood Clots in the blood vessels of the lungs. This restricts blood flow and causes increased blood pressure in the lung vessels. PAH is a disease that is caused by narrowing of the blood vessels in the lungs, causing increased blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs. In both conditions, the heart has to work harder, causing people to feel tired, dizzy, or short of breath.

Your doctor may have suggested Adempas (Riociguat) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Adempas (Riociguat), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Adempas (Riociguat) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Adempas (Riociguat) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Adempas (Riociguat) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Adempas 

Dosage

The recommended starting dose of Adempas (Riociguat) is 1 mg taken 3 times daily for 2 weeks. It may be taken with or without food, but should be spaced approximately 6 to 8 hours apart. Your doctor will gradually increase the dose as long as your blood pressure does not become too low or other side effects are not tolerated. The total daily dose should not be more than 7.5 mg (2.5 mg taken 3 times daily).

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Adempas (Riociguat) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not stop taking Adempas (Riociguat) suddenly, unless you are experiencing serious side effects. If you feel it is necessary to stop taking Adempas (Riociguat), discuss this with your doctor.

If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. If you have missed taking the medication for three days or more, contact your doctor before restarting Adempas (Riociguat).

Store Adempas (Riociguat) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not use Adempas (Riociguat) after the expiry date stated on the label.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Bleeding: High blood pressure in the lungs tends to cause increased bleeding.
