Treprostinil subcutaneous (under the skin) infusion is a very good medication for treating pulmonary arterial hypertension but infusion site pain may be very severe in some patients. The investigators plan to treat patients receiving treprostinil with a subcutaneous infusion of lidocaine (a local anesthestic) to treat the pain.
