Cilostazol is indicated to treat symptoms of intermittent claudication (blood flow problems) such as cramping, weakness or numbness in the legs. It can also lessen the muscle and cramps that occur during exercise or while walking.
Cilostazol is an antiplatelet and vasodilator combination drug. It works by preventing blood cells known as platelets from sticking together. It also prevents them from forming harmful clots by widening blood vessels in the legs. Ultimately, Cilostazol helps the blood move with ease and keeps it flowing smoothly within the body.
This drug can increase the amount of oxygen that gets to the muscles as well.
