Were you looking for information about Trental? Trentol is a common misspelling of Trental.
Available by prescription only, Trental® (pentoxifylline) is approved to treat the symptoms of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). It is designed to help improve circulation by reducing the viscosity (thickness) of the blood, so that the blood can move more freely to the arms and legs. Common side effects include nausea and vomiting. Because an overdose of this medication can lead to serious problems, make sure to seek immediate medical attention if you think you may have taken too much.
