I recently tested positive for scleroderma associated with my PAH. Does anyone use medication for this?
Pulmonary Hypertension is the umbrella under which Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension falls. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is a form of Pulmonary Hypertension. It is Group1 in the World Health Organization classifications. I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension secondary to Limited Systemic Sclerosis (Scleroderma) in 2012. I take Hydroxychloroquine and Prednisone for my Scleroderma and Ambrisentan, Sildenafil, and Furosemide for PAH. I also take a few non-prescription supplements on the advice of my PAH team which includes my Rheumatologist, Cardiologist and Pulmonologist.

Scleroderma can cause ph and pah. They go hand in hand. Some ppl get it, others do not
My cardiologist feels a lot of mine is due to Sjourns an auto immune disease which can also cause scleroderma.
