What is pentoxifylline? Is this can help for chronic kidney disease?
Asked by Migdalia Krupke 6 months ago.
Pentoxifylline, a drug used to treat patients with circulation problems, may also benefit those with kidney disease caused by diabetes and other conditions. Specifically, pentoxifylline decreases proteinuria, the abnormal leakage of protein into the urine. Proteinuria is a strong risk factor for kidney failure, and by decreasing proteinuria, pentoxifylline may help in reducing the likelihood that a diabetic patient will end up needing dialysis. If you unsure ask the doctor. specialist or the National Kidney Foundation. Answered by Sylvie Fatula 6 months ago.

If you have inflammation, then Fibromyalgia isn't your only problem. There is no inflammation in Fibromyalgia. I have tried Naproxen (unsuccessful), ibuprofen (successful) and prednisone (successful) for inflammation from my arthritis. .... Answered by Emelda Dorson 6 months ago.
In my view it is usually a protracted contamination worsened by means of your previous disorders. As for what your dermatologist says, I'd attempt to get a moment opinion, on account that he definitely does not recognise a lot approximately the uncircumcised penis head, that is SUPPOSED to be saved wet. I recognise this would sound loopy, however have you ever attempted leaving it by myself for a whilst? The human frame often reacts poorly to an excessive amount of cleaning soap or an excessive amount of friction. Soap and the friction that is going at the side of making use of it has a tendency to dry touchy tissues out that could be facet of the obstacle. Usually the frame can do the process of maintaining matters healthful (although no longer continuously first-rate-smelling) flawlessly good. If that does not paintings, has any health practitioner instructed antibiotics? Inflammation that has no particular intent is most commonly triggered by means of overactive antibodies. If they are going nuts approximately a few contamination that does not exist, you would ask your health practitioner if antibiotics might support. Finally, get screened for allergy symptoms. It might be that you are allergic to anything you are dressed in as lingerie. Answered by Jarrod Kourt 6 months ago.
You might want to get the following nutrients checked by the doctor/nurse (they will take a blood test to see if you're low in any of them): Magnesium, vitamin B12, vitamin B5, vitamin B3, and vitamin B1. These nutrients have a MAJOR effect on pain and the nerves system in your body (and magnesium is even good against leg cramping)!! and medication might make you feel good, but it also depletes nutrition. so make sure you're getting these nutrients and knowing if you're low in them.

Would trental (pentoxifylline) decrease blood pressure, specially diastolic blood pressure?
Asked by Odell Froid 6 months ago.
Trental reduces the viscosity or stickiness of your blood, allowing it to flow more freely. thus the heart would have to work less to pump blood. decreased resistance = decreased pressure Answered by Carrol Timpone 6 months ago.

Asked by Charlene Salzer 6 months ago.
Is your doctor aware of all the other medications you are using? This would include any over the counter medications like pain relievers, cold remedies, even vitamins and herbal supplements. Make sure you are completely honest, even if you are using substances that aren't exactly legal. Your life can depend on it. You need to contact your doctor asap and report any possible side effects so it can be determined whether you need to continue or discontinue medication. Get a second (medical) opinion if your questions aren't answered to your satisfaction. Answered by Latarsha Erding 6 months ago.
Some people have reported less weakening side effects when they significantly decreased starch in their diets, significantly increased high quality protein (eggs, cheese, fish), vitamin E, and changed exercise from aerobics to cardio. Though I suggest talking to a doctor prior to making such changes. Answered by Bessie Kujawski 6 months ago.
Has anyone ever used pentoxifylline for there dogs?mine has really dry skin on his ears .?
the vet is who recommed and ordered it
Asked by Ezra Dad 6 months ago.
he does not have mites and this has been an on going problem ,i changed his food to science diet ,and he gets vit too,he is very healthy but today the vet gave him this med and siad sometimes the ciculation is not good to ears and it will cause this ,does anyone know if its dangerous ,i have gave him one dose and he vomited a lil but this is commmon on thismed ,i just wanted to know if anyone else has used it ,i know its common ,but just kinda scared ..please answer this for me thanks Answered by Aron Darakjian 6 months ago.
If you have questions about the medication you may want to consult your vet again to be clear of any side effects or if there is an alternative they may recommend. You do need to inform your vet that the pet vomited. They will want to know if the pet vomited shortly after administering the medication? Typically, if it was within the hour, the medication probably came up and she didn't get much, if any of it in her system. I disagree with the comment stating Hills is not a quality brand diet. I work for a vet and we highly recommend it. My dogs are on the Hills J/D (Joint/Diet) and I've noticed significant improvement on their ability to get around. I'm barely using pain management medications for them since starting the diet. Once again, if you feel there is an issue with the medication, consult your regular vet or consider getting a second opinion from another. Either way, good luck. Hope your "baby" gets to feeling better soon. Answered by Karima Brining 6 months ago.
This will cause vomiting and diarrhea every dose he gets, it is not a good medication......trust me, I had to use it once, and the 3rd day, my vet said to stop it right now, our vet was on vacation and we had to take one of my little boys to the Er Vet, and when our vet returned, I called him, he said do not give that stuff, we stopped it immediately, and it took 3-4 days to get the baby back to stop vomiting, he had to have fluid IV's for 2 days due to dehydration from vomiting...you may want to change vets, or call him back again. also, the science diet dog food is not a good food for your dog, it causes bladder problems the longer the dog is on it, and is not furnishing all the vitamins and minerals the dog needs......our vet will not sell or recommend science diet at all.....

Do you give the meds with food???/ This might help and does not have an effect on absorption. You also might want to ask your veterinarian for the drug insert and read the side effects. You could probably google the drug and find out this kind of information also. And to answer your question, I have not used it but this is what the doctor I worked with explained. Hope this helps Good luck Answered by Maria Hoen 6 months ago.

Yes, there are some natural ways to treat poor circulation. Cayenne or Capsicum (same herb) is excellent for increasing circulation. It is hot pepper. Take with food! Another herb that increases circulation to the extremeties is Ginko Biloba. You can take these herbs together, simultaneously, with no problems. A deodorized garlic supplement would also help. Cayenne strengthens the heart, too...while ginko biloba improves memory & helps improve erectile dysfunction, too. I know nothing about the medicine you mentioned. Sorry.

Why does the Pentoxifylline (tablet form) should be taken without breaking, crushing, or chewing the tablet?
Asked by Colette Possick 6 months ago.
The tablet is designed to be controlled-release. It is only given three times daily. Crushing or chewing the tablet would destroy the time-release mechanism, and the tablet would not give appropriate amounts of drug over time. Answered by Londa Bickett 6 months ago.
