    Default Iloprost infusion

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone has had an iloprost infusion before. My rhuemy suggested that I should consider having one to help with my circulation and raynauds symptoms. I got put off by him saying I will have to go to hospital for 5 days to get the infusion. I am on nifedipine at the moment but don't like the side effects, so maybe I should give it a go in order to stop the nifedipine.

    Would love to know others experiences of having an iloprost infusion, and whether it was beneficial or not.

    Thanks

    Hi Sprant,
    Welcome to the site. I have no idea about this type of infusion. Saysusie or Oluwa may know about this and have some answers for you. I just want to welcome you and hope that you will keep posting.

    Hugs,
