In brief: PH Treatment
Fda approved treatments include oral endothelin receptor antagonists (eras), ambrisentan and bosentan; oral phosphodiesterase inhibitors, tadalafil and sildenafil; and prostanoids (iloprost, epoprostenol, and treprostinil) that can be delivered via inhalation or by intravenous or subcutaneous infusion.
The "best" treatment of pulmonary hypertension (ph) should be discussed with your doctor.

In brief: Many
First you have to find out the reason you have pulmonary hypertension; depending on the cause, treatment can be tried with endothelin receptor blockers, phosphodiasterase inhibitors, prostacyclin analogues, digoxin, diuretics, warfarin and oxygen.
Most important is to find out the cause and what group (1-5) of pulmonary hypertension you belong too.
