Mechanism of action
A drug that improves microcirculation. Angioprotector, a derivative of methylxanthine.
The mechanism of action of Pentoxifylline is associated with inhibition of phosphodiesterase and accumulation of cAMP in vascular smooth muscle cells, in the blood cells, in other tissues and organs.
It inhibits platelet aggregation and red blood cells, increases their flexibility, reduces the increased concentration of fibrinogen in the plasma and increases fibrinolysis, which reduces blood viscosity and improves its rheological properties. It has a weak myotropic vasodilating effect, slightly decreases the round focal disease and has a positive inotropic effect. When using the drug, there is an improvement in microcirculation and oxygen supply to tissues, to the greatest extent in the limbs and the central nervous system, and to a moderate degree in the kidneys. The drug slightly expands the coronary vessels.

From the blood coagulation system: very rarely - thrombocytopenia; in patients with an increased tendency to bleeding - bleeding (for example, from vessels of the skin, mucous membranes, stomach, intestines).
