Under The Skin
I talked about Remodulin yesterday as being an IV medication to treat PAH symptoms. Remodulin can also be administered subcutaneously, meaning, under the skin. Subq Remodulin works in the same way as IV and inhaled Remodulin, by relaxing the blood vessels to allow more blood to flow and carry oxygen around, which then allows the heart to pump easier. Subq Remodulin requires site changes every so often, and are usually put into the abdominal region. Subq Remodulin can be quite painful for most users.
