    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.
  • Can cilostazol cause hair loss?
    I have been taking Cilostazol 100mg for 8 months for vascular disease and recently noticed I am losing ALOT of hair. I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this problem and if it is possible that it is the Cilostazol causing the hair loss. And when I say ALOT of hair, I mean it is coming out in big wads. I went to my doctor and she just says its stress but checked my thyroid and said it was fine and never mentioned If the Cilostazol could be causing it. I am 63 and have been stressed my whole life and never lost my hair before. I didn't think to mention the Cilostazol because I am on several other medications but I have been on them for several years and this medication is the most recent one added as of 8 months ago. I would appreciate any help I could get. Thank You
  • Is pentoxifylline effective in treatment of radiation proctitus?
    Gastroenterologist suggests Pentoxifylline to increase blood flow to help reduce or stop minor (but increasingly frequent) blood loss noticeable 15 months after radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
  • Does smoking marijuana while being treated for periperal artery disease worsen the disease?
    I've had two bi-femoral bypass grafts that have failed due to over-healing. I have a stent in my left leg and the right leg has had to find it's own blood flow as a stent couldn't be introduced. I have burning pain in my toes in the right leg. It is like the pain I had when my toes turned black 3 years ago and I discovered I had PAD. I quit smoking cigarettes immediately
