Thoughts on using pentoxifylline in conjunction with your program?
Thanks for the interesting question.
In several places on the PDI website I have laid out my thoughts about using pentoxifylline to treat Peyronie's disease, such as Pentoxifylline, Niacin and Peyronie’s Disease and Pentoxifylline and Peyronie's disease.
I have never taken a position to say that any person should not take a medication that has been prescribed by a treating physician. If that pentoxifylline has been prescribed to you, then by all means listen to your doctor and take what he or she has ordered.
However, it just happens to be my personal opinion that what pentoxifylline is supposed to do to help Peyronie's disease recovery is not indicated or especially helpful for the correction of the Peyronies scar. The purported benefit of pentoxy is that it increases blood flow in the lower half of the body. With this in mind, please know that no one has ever reported or suggested that the cause of Peyronie's disease is reduced blood flow. What pentoxifylline does is not related to what is wrong with the penis that has PD. On top of that also know that there are fewer MDs using pentoxifylline than several years ago; it seems to be losing its popularity for lack of clinical success.
Some men do take prescribed drugs in addition to following some type of Peyronie's disease therapy that comes from PDI. I cannot report how that usually works out for them because the results have never been shared with me.
Good luck to your.
