What to know about Pentoxifylline Tablets
How it Works
When taken over a period of months Pentoxifylline may prevent continued scaring, improve erection quality through improved blood circulation, and help reduce the calcification of the plaque.
Who is it for?
While pentoxifylline is not FDA-approved for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease it is prescribed as an off-label medication for men with penile curvature.
After 4-6 months of taking 400mg of Pentoxifylline (PTX), participants in one study found that PTX either stabilized or made improvement in the calcifications caused by Peyronie’s Disease.
