Revatio Is Not Recommended For Children Up To Age 17

Revatio / The Maher Law Firm / Frank Eidson Attorney At LawPfizer Inc’s drug – Revatio – is a PAH (Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension) drug that should not be used in children up to 17 years of age

Revatio was never approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for treatment of PAH in children, although, the FDA is warning against “off-label” (non-FDA approved) use of the drug.

Pfizer’s erectile dysfunction drug, Viagra, and Revatio contain the same active ingredient.  The ingredient is used to improve the ability to exercise in people with hypertension or high blood pressure.

According to U.S health regulators, Revatio has a higher risk of death when taken in a high dose.  Revatio, will now carry a new warning label.

If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered injury or death due to a defective or dangerous pharmaceutical, you may have a right to compensation for your injuries. The Maher Law Firm and Frank Eidson attorney at law, would like to help.
