What are your thoughts on Pentoxyfilline for Peyronie’s disease treatment?

Hello Doctor,

I’ve been dealing with this crazy Peyronie’s condition for about 18 months. In that time, I’ve visited 4 different urologists. The first was when I first experienced mild pain in the left tip of my penis. The doctor diagnosed it as prostatitis and send me on my way with some antibiotics. A second urologist several months later diagnosed me with superficial vein thrombosis. Finally, several months after that, I was diagnosed by a third urologist with peyronie’s which seemed to appear as long bands of inflammation from the base of the penis to the tip on both sides. I was told surgery was the only option, and was sent on my way.

Not satisfied with the suggested treatment plan of surgery, I decided to surf the web and do my own research. I found a site that promoted Neprinol as the only known cure. So I bought into it. I think I tried 2 full months (9 pills a day). The only result was a substantial hit on my wallet. So I went back to the web and found another site (PeyroniesForum.net) where members talk about various treatment options. The consensus on the site was that Neprinol was in fact a huge scam, and I stopped using them. Members also praised the use of Pentoxyfiline as being an outstanding product for softening scar tissue and alleviating curved penis. So I went back to a fourth urologist and asked for a prescription, but was denied. Instead, i was recommended to try the Andropenis traction device.

I’ve been on the device for 5 full weeks now, but I think I’ve decided to stop. Your website recommends against it, as well as another site. My urologist described it as working in a manner opposite of what a Nesbit procedure would be. For instance, rather than shorten the penis on the site opposite the scar tissue, traction would elongate the scar tissue to correct curvature that way instead. Made sense to me at the time. But now it sounds as if traction does not work because it’s not really stretching the scar tissue, rather only healthy tissue.

So if I stop with traction, I’ll be happy to not deal with that contraption any longer. It reminded me of having my penis in a mousetrap for 9 hours a day. Not to mention I always worried about whether people could see it jutting out through my trousers at work, and despised having to take it off every two hours to relax. That’s not always easy in the middle of a busy work day.

In any case, I came across your web site again. I’ve decided I’m going to give your “Medium” package a try, so I placed an order. I admit I’m very reluctant because you seem to be a heavy proponent of Neprinol, and I’ve heard people state emphatically that the product is a scam. I also ordered your Handbook. It’s expensive, but maybe there’s something in it that I can learn.

I do have a few questions if you wouldn’t mind responding. Today, I have two “knots’ in my penis. One that feels about the size of a dime on the right size near the base of my penis. Another is about the same size, also on the right size, but towards the tip. But my penis bends to the left when flaccid (sometimes 10-20 degrees, sometimes 45 degrees like after masturbation), and I can’t figure that out. That’s seems counter to everything I’ve heard before, that the bend is on the same side as the plaque.  So if you have any insight as to why my bend is to the left when my plaque is on the right, I’d be very interested. Regardless, that leads to my first question, how will I know where to apply the topical treatments? Would I apply to the right side where the “knots” or “bumps” are located, or should I be looking somewhere on the left side for plaque? Or should I just apply the treatment to the entire penis shaft? Maybe directions come with the kit, but any advice you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Second, can you share your thoughts on Pentoxyfilline and it’s effectiveness for Peyronie’s. Not sure if I’m spelling that correctly.

Finally, who can I find a coupon code? I noticed when I placed the order for one medium package and one book, that there was a place to enter a coupon code. I did some web surfing to find a code, but was unable. If you can share a code, or apply a n appropriate discount to my order, I’d greatly appreciate that.

Hope you’re doing well. Looking forward to your thoughts.

Greetings Mike,

Thank you for your informative letter and specific questions.  I will reply with comments and answers in the order of your email.

There is no direct known cure for Peyronie’s disease.  Neprinol is not a cure, but is is not a scam.  In my opinion, after working with many hundreds of men from around the world who are undergoing Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronie’s disease, I know Neprinol is an excellent enzyme product.   It cannot be counted on as a solo therapy for Peyronie’s disease since none of the products found on the PDI website are by themselves able to change the PD scar or plaque material.  None of the therapies found on the PDI website are good solo therapies – they all must be used as part of a larger plan to support the natural healing process that is the only known form of cure for Peyronie’s disease.   When Neprinol is combined properly and taken aggressively the results can be dramatic.  I do not know how any of the experts on the various Peyronies forums actually used Neprinol when they took it, but many times when I communicate with men about their failure with  Neprinol I learn that they “tried it for a few weeks and it did not work,” or “I took two pills a day and it did not work,” or some similar manner of use that is doomed from the start.   In order to get results from Neprinol it must be used correctly.  If you bought your Neprinol from PDI we warned you not to use it that way; if you bought it from someone who does not know anything about PD you did not get that kind of help so you would know better.  Peyronie’s disease is a tough and tenacious problem to treat.  I am not surprised at your lack of results after using Neprinol as a solo therapy.

Here is a simple example that just occurred to me about Neprinol and PD:   Beans are a great food.  I like beans.  But by itself beans make a lousy chili – it is just beans.  For a good chili you have to add meat, garlic, onions, tomatoes, lots of different spices and a few other items.  It is only by combining the beans with all the other ingredients that you create chili.  None of the ingredients by itself is chili.  It is in using the correct technique (there are rules for bringing the ingredients together, you cannot just throw everything into a pot) when you bring all these things together to develop the magic that becomes a great bowl of chili.  Same with combining Neprinol with the other things your body needs to help it overcome and correct your curved penis and Peyronie’s disease.  

Pentoxifylline is popular with some urologists and not so much with others.  I think that those who actually prescribe pentoxifylline do so because they are tired of dealing with the other drugs that do not work and only use this one because they do not know what else to use.   Perhaps I am being overly skeptical and blunt in my assessment.   Some time back I wrote two articles that might be helpful on this subject, Pentoxifylline, Niacin and Peyronie’s Disease and Pentoxifylline and Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Every month I hear more horror stories about the mechanical penis stretcher devices.    You did not indicate what problems you were having that you wanted not to deal with it any longer, but it usually has to do with pain as well as skin abrasions and blisters, and the fact that it does not work for the large majority of men.

The two plaque or internal scars you have located do not explain your deviation to the left.  My experience is that Peyronie’s plaque are usually multiple.  I suspect that the two you have found on the right are not the only ones that you have.  I suspect you also have one or more plaque on the left that are far more aggressive and instrumental in distorting your penis that those you have found on the right.   Let me know if you need help locating the other scars and I will assist you.   If you can not locate those scars on the left that are causing your distortion pattern I suggest that you apply the therapy at the deepest or lowest point of your concavity on the left. You could apply the DMSO, Super CP Serum and Unique-E vitamin E oil to the entire shaft if you wanted to, but it is unnecessary and wasteful; be as specific as possible.   I trust that the detailed DMSO instructions you received with your order cleared up this point for you. 

When you received your order you were given information about the use of a discount code for subsequent orders.

Let me know if  I can help you in any way.  TRH
