Drug:Ambrisentan Tablet
Dosage:10 mg

Letairis (Ambrisentan) is a prescription medication used for the treatment of high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension PAH). Ambrisentan belongs to the class of drugs called Endothelin receptor antagonists (ETRAs). This class of drugs prevents the constriction or narrowing of blood vessels thereby enhancing blood flow throughout the body. Ambrisentan works by blocking endothelin, a substance that is made by the body. Endothelin causes the blood vessels to narrow and it also causes abnormal growth of the muscle in the walls of the blood vessels in the lungs, which increases your blood pressure.
