Can iloprost affect other medications and treatments?

You can take all your usual medications before and after a course of iloprost. However, during a course of iloprost, your doctor will probably recommend that you don't take certain other medications which also widen the blood vessels or lower blood pressure.

When you go to the hospital on the first day, take a list of all your medications with you. Your doctor will tell you whether you should leave out any medications on the days when you're having an infusion.

Can I have vaccinations while I'm on iloprost?

Iloprost doesn't affect vaccinations, so you can have them before or after a course of iloprost treatment. In the unlikely event that you need a vaccination during a course of iloprost, your specialist will advise you.
