CILOSTAZOLE

Information for patients
Drug Information Cilostazol 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.You have been prescribed Cilostazol for "intermittent claudication". Intermittent claudication is the cramplike pain in your legs when you walk and is caused by insufficient blood supply in your legs. Cilostazol can increase the distance you can walk without pain since it improves the blood circulation in your legs.

Drug Drug Interactions Before you start taking Cilostazol, please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. You should specifically inform your doctor if you take some medicines usually used to treat painful and/or inflammatory conditions of muscle or joints, or if you take medicines to reduce blood clotting (e.g. aspirin [acetylsalicylic acid], clopidogrel, warfarin). If you are taking such medicines with Cilostazol your doctor may perform some routine blood tests. Certain medicines may interfere with the effect of Cilostazol when taken together. They may either increase the side effects of Cilostazol or make Cilostazol less effective. Cilostazol may do the same to other medicines. Before you start taking Cilostazol, please tell your doctor if you are taking: •erythromycin or rifampicin (antibiotics) •ketoconazole (to treat fungal infections) •omeprazole (to treat excess acid in the stomach) •diltiazem (to treat high blood pressure or chest pain) •cisapride (to treat stomach disorders) •lovastatin or simvastatin (to treat high cholesterol in the blood) •halofantrine (to treat malaria) •pimozide (to treat mental illnesses) •ergot derivatives (to treat migraine) •carbamazepin or phenytoin (to treat convulsions) •St. John’s wort (a herbal remedy) If you are not sure if this applies to your medicines ask your doctor or pharmacist.
