E-F

​​​​​​​Caripul (epoprostenol - AS) This is the brand that is currently in use at LHSC. The salt used to suspend this form of epoprostenol proves a more stable solution (arginine and sucrose), therefore, it does not need to be kept on ice. 

 

Flolan (epoprostenol - GM) 
Flolan  is suspended in Glycine and mannitol. This brand will only be seen in the rare patient who is on it at home. It MUST be kept on ice at all times.
