Yes: Adcirca (tadalafil) is a once a day dru called a pde-5 inhibitor. These drugs cause blood vessels to widen, which may result in a decrease in pulmonary hypertension. In original trials with the drug it improved exercise capacity (people can walk further) and decreased the risk for needing lung transplant, hospitalization or other medications.
