Trental and Ampyra

I have MS and lymphedema. My leg doctor put me on trental 400mg 3x/day then my neurologist put me on Ampyra. Do they both do the same thing... Dilate the blood vessels in the legs? I can't get a yes or no answer. ## Hello, Elaine! How are you? Trental improves blood flow, but Ampyra improves walking ability and speed, as reported by the FDA. Side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and blurred vision. Have you had any improvement from taking them? ## Thank you for answering. Yes, it helps. My concern is the information I got from ampyra with my first supply said it helps with walking speed, but they are not sure how! If it is in fact from better blood flow then I don't want to take too much. ## My last post substituted Ampyra with amputated. Sorry ...

Combezide L

i was on approvel and trental but my blood pressure was out of control due to lack to sleep in my view. i was prescrived combezide-L and it seems to be working as my pressure is down to 120/85. Will I have any side effects to have changed from approvel and trental? ## Combezide-L is listed as containing Resperine and Lisinopril, from the resources I've found, it's used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions. A sudden switch can sometimes cause some rebound effects, which means after 10 to 14 days, you may experience several days of elevated blood pressure and heart rate.

These may include nausea, severe diz...
