Trental® (pentoxifylline) is a medication licensed to treat circulation problems caused by peripheral arterial disease (PAD). It helps to improve blood flow by reducing the viscosity (thickness) of the blood, which allows the blood to move more freely to the arms and legs. This prescription medication comes in the form of an extended-release tablet and is taken three times daily. Possible side effects include nausea and vomiting.
