I have also been told that Trental and Pentoxifylline are not being made any longer. Why??? This medication works. I tried Plavix once and it gave me terrible pains in my legs. Can we get the manufacturer to please make this medication??/

I have been taking this drug for 3yrs with great relief of my leg cramping! But,over the last 3 months my pharmacy and others have been unable to acquire it from the manufacturer.It is always on backorder!It's terrible not being able to get the drug that has helped you feel and live better! What is going on that the drug manufacturer is not supplying this to the pharmacies???

I have been taking this drug for scleraderma for 25 years. It eliminated the ulcers on my fingers and as far as I am concerned is a Godsend. It certainly is available.

I have taken Trental for several years,and have had no side effects. My pharmacist told me that it had been discontiued. They gave me Pentoxifylline, after taking them for a few days, I noticed that I was getting a headache so I stopped taking them.

81 year old male has an occluded abdominal aorta with very poor circulation in both legs for over 19 years. Trental seems to help prevent severe cramping while walking even though I can only walk short distance. I have not had any side effects that I am aware. I take 3 pills w/food 3 times per day.

HAD LEG CRAMPS. GONE NOW.

Comment from: myjoyznhim, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: February 01

My dermatologist prescribed this medication to help with a not so common skin condition, GA, and it worked wonders after 2 months of 400mg 3xdaily. Then my condition started to get bad again but I did not know that smoking (which I started up again recently)decreases the efficiency of the drug dramatically. I wish the doctor would have told me this before I started the medication but don't know if that is the total reason why my treatment failed. I am still taking it but am doubtful as to it's beneficial. I have had trouble in the past filling this prescription, but my pharmacist checked another pharmacy and they had it in, otherwise, no problems getting the medication. Is there anyone else out there that has an usual experience with this medication that effects their skin or other side effects? I hope this helps someone.
