Re: The cranky thread
No, but it is used to treat pulmonary hypertension. Though it is called Revatio when used for that. A few years back one of my officemates at the time (a nurse dealing with pulmonary hypertension patients) went round and round with an insurance company. Revatio only comes in certain doses, whereas Viagra (exact same medication) comes in a wider variety of doses. It was much easier for this particular patient to get the correct dose using Viagra instead of Revatio. The insurance company however only covered Revatio, and not Viagra. Even though they are the same exact drug, made by the same company. I believe she eventually got through to the insurance company on it and the patient got what she needed.
