Can pentoxifylline help with increasing blood flow when a man has PD? Also is Niacin also an alternative that might achieve any results?

Pentoxifylline has been shown in animal studies to potentially reduce the development of the Peyronie’s scar when the animals consumed the Pentox in their drinking water from the time that the Peyronie’s process is triggered. Pentoxifylline is indicated to enhance blood flow to the lower extremities in

There was a placebo-controlled study published in 2005 on Potaba which showed that this drug halted progression of Peyronie’s. Based on this data for those who tolerate Potaba, would this not be a reasonable addition to a verapamil injection and/or verapamil iontophoresis regimen? Would there be any contraindications to this?

You are clearly doing your homework investigating the research on Potaba which was a very well conducted placebo-controlled trial. This study did show stabilization of the disease and some reduction in plaque size in those patients who received Potaba, but there was no evidence of improvement of

I’ve recently completed iontophoresis with 25 treatments every other day. The verapamil dosage was 20 mg/ml, using a positive charge with IOMED delivery pads. I used the verapamil only and did not include the decadron as many pharmacists, and my doctor said you can’t drive 2 drugs in with different charges (positive and negative). I saw absolutely no change in my condition, although I have lost size, and my penis seems to be hard when flaccid. Is there any advice you could give me now? I am going to try a decadron only sequence next as they said this works better on long standing scars and mine is 9 years old.

The use of iontophoresis for Peyronie’s disease has primarily focused on the Physion device from Italy. This is a device which delivers the positively charged energy via a reservoir which is filled with the verapamil with or without the decadron solution. My experience with this device is

I developed a sudden onset of Peyronie’s disease following treatment of blood pressure with Prinivil. This resulted in curvature to the left, as well as a 2-inch loss of length. If I were able to get my blood pressure down off of this medications would this help?

There is no evidence that any specific medication will activate or cause Peyronie’s disease. It is likely that the erections may have been somewhat diminished as a result of your high blood pressure, and made you more subject to activation of the Peyronie’s disease during intercourse. Most

I have Peyronie’s disease now for 12 years. All the ED pills will give an erection, but I quickly lose it. Is there anything I can do or take so the blood stays trapped? A cock ring does not work.

It does appear that you have developed erectile dysfunction. It would be my advise that you seek evaluation by an erectile dysfunction/Peyronie’s disease expert who could perform the proper studies to see if you may be a candidate for the following medical treatment such as vacuum therapy,

If using the suggested modalities of treatment for Peyronie’s disease, Would it help or hinder a person who is taking Coumadin for heart valve replacement?

Virtually all of the current modalities for treatment of Peyronie’s disease can be offered to patients who are on anticoagulant therapy including Coumadin. The primary precaution to using a type of invasive therapy such as intralesional injections is bruising. To reduce bruising, compression of the injection site
