I have Erythomelalgia and was prescribed Trental. I have been taking it for 3 weeks and my symptoms seem to be getting worse, not better. Not sure if this is the right medication to treat this condition.

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.

Comment from: myjoyznhim 45-54 Female 1 to less than 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.

For those of you looking for info on Trental. I checked into this for my mom. The drug is backordered. I found nothing which stated from Sanofi-Aventis, or the FDA that the drug was discontinued. Hang in their.
