INTRODUCTION

RACILOZ 100MG contains Cilostazol which belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 3 inhibitors. It has several actions which include widening of some blood vessels and reducing the clotting activity (clumping) of some blood cells called platelets inside your vessels. It is usually prescribed for intermittent claudication. Intermittent claudication is the cramp-like pain in your legs when you walk and is caused by insufficient blood supply in your legs.

Cilostazol helps in increasing the distance you can walk without pain since it improves the blood circulation in your legs. It is only recommended for patients whose symptoms have not improved sufficiently after making life-style modifications (such as stopping smoking and increasing exercise) and after other appropriate interventions. This medicine is not suitable for children and adolescents.

USES OF RACILOZ 100MG

  • Reduces the of symptoms of intermittent claudication as indicated by an increased walking distance

HOW RACILOZ 100MG WORKS

Cilostazol belongs to a class of medications called platelet-aggregation inhibitors (antiplatelet medications) which works by improving blood flow to the legs. It exerts its action by inhibiting phosphodiesterase activity and suppressing cAMP degradation. The inhibition of PDE3 allows for a rise in cAMP in platelets and blood vessels.

Always take RACILOZ 100MG exactly as your doctor has directed you. It usually comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken twice a day. It should be taken 30 minutes before breakfast and the evening meal. Follow the directions on the label before use.

FAQs ABOUT RACILOZ 100MG

Why is RACILOZ 100MG considered harmful for heart failure patients?

It should not be given to heart failure patients of any severity because it may worsen heart failure further. Medicines having similar effect (phosphodiesterase inhibitor III) have decreased the lifespan of the patients, and therefore, it is an absolute no for heart failure patients.
