Trental , also medically known as pentoxifylline, is a blood flow enhancer used to improve blood circulation in the hands, feet and legs.
This drug effectively relieves aches, pains, cramping, and tiredness caused by poor blood circulation and is available in the form of extended-release (long-acting) tablets.
Common side effects associated with this type of medication include upset stomach, vomiting, gas, headache and dizziness. If you are experiencing more severe side effects or your side effects appear to be getting progressively worse, contact your doctor for assistance, as soon as possible.
Trental may also be prescribed to treat and alleviate pain associated with leg ulcers, strokes, high altitude sickness, eye disorders and ear disorders. It may occasionally be prescribed for other purposes as well, as directed by your doctor.
