Have been on Pletal foralmost 2 months. Seems to help a lot. I still have some pain when walking, but not as bad as it use to be. Hopefully, it will continue to help. no side effects from the medication.

Diagnosed with PAD approximately 4 years ago; had pain in outer muscle of rt leg for 4yrs prior to diagnosis. Leg felt heavy and was painful more at night if I slept on my right side. Pain subsided up until very recently, when the pain/ache came back at night.

I have poor circulation due to my popitial artery being severed during a knee replacement. This drug seems to work for me with no side effects

Comment from: orangychris, 55-64 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: September 03

I am taking this medication for a complete blockage of my right fem-pop artery with collateral circulation almost complete; stenting was not an option during my CT angio procedure so not to injury the new arteries growth. So far, my leg feels better but I initially had cramps while walking and resting. More so at night while sleeping; it would wake me up. I have been on the medication almost two months. The cramping only involves the foot and arch of the foot now. I have more frequent looser and lighter in color bowel movements. It happens about 2hrs after eating a meal. I take the morning pill 30 minutes prior to breakfast and the evening pill 30-60 minutes prior to eating dinner. Sometimes, I feel my heart beating harder but my pulse is normal. Generally, I am doing much better than prior to the medication. The cramping at night has ceased and the leg cramps are gone completely. The doctor stated it would take approx 3 months before all the red blood cells would be slicked up and coated and relief would be felt. But it has been much sooner.
