Patients receiving Remodulin (treprostinil sodium) should be given the following information: Remodulin (treprostinil sodium) is infused continuously through a subcutaneous or surgically placed indwelling central venous catheter, via an infusion pump. Therapy with Remodulin (treprostinil sodium) will be needed for prolonged periods, possibly years, and the patient's ability to accept and care for a catheter and to use an infusion pump should be carefully considered. In order to reduce the risk of infection, aseptic technique must be used in the preparation and administration of Remodulin (treprostinil sodium) . Additionally, patients should be aware that subsequent disease management may require the initiation of an alternative intravenous prostacyclin therapy, Flolan® (epoprostenol sodium).
