Cilostazol And Improved Mobility

Updated

How much improvement can some achieve?
I just started the medication yesterday and I know not to expect any improvement for at least 2 weeks maybe more. I can only walk a block before the pain forces me to stop and rest. Can I expect 5 blocks an 1/8th or 1/4 mile. I've already had a femoral bypass on my right leg. I just want to be able to stroll down the street and dance now and then with my honey.

From what I can find, most studies have shown an improvement ranging from 44 to 48%, compared to 10 to 13% for a placebo group, so it was definitely a significant improvement. The peaks were reached at weeks 8 and 12 of taking it.

Side effects to this medication may include nausea, headache, diarrhea and increased heart rate.

Is there anything else I can help with?

No that answered the question fairly well. I'll put on my patience hat.
