I hope that this question isn't too general. Is the treatment for pulmonary hypertension always the same as the usual treatment for cardiac failure? Please elaborate if possible.

In brief: No.

Pulmonary hypertension requires specific medicines.
Heart failure completely different medicines, though significant pulmonary hypertension can cause right sided heart failure that requires heart failure medications.

In brief: It is too general

The treatment is nearly totally different and too complex to be discussed in this forum. You need to ask your doctor to explain the differences.
