INTRODUCTION

CABAZA 400MG contains Pentoxifylline which belongs to the group of medicines called Peripheral vasodilators. It is used in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease (poor blood circulation to the arms and legs) and intermittent claudication (pain while walking or at rest due to poor circulation to the legs). Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of your heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm and it occurs mostly in legs. Symptoms include leg weakness and numbness, painful cramp in hips, thighs or calf muscles after activities like walking or climbing stairs and cool skin around lower leg or foot.

Pentoxifylline works by decreasing the thickness (viscosity) of blood and allowing it to pass more easily through the blood vessels. This effect is useful in peripheral vascular disease, where the blood vessels in the arms and legs are narrowed.

CABAZA 400MG is not recommended for use in patients who have heart problems or recently had a heart attack, severe palpitations (very fast and uneven heartbeats), stroke with bleeding in the brain (cerebral hemorrhage), and bleeding in the eye (retinal hemorrhage). Before taking CABAZA 400MG inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. It is not recommended for use in children and adolescents (under 18 years of age) and it should be used with caution in elderly patients (aged 65 years and above). The most common side effects of taking CABAZA 400MG are bloating, diarrhea, flushing, nausea, stomach discomfort, and vomiting. Contact your physician if any of the symptoms worsen.
