Method of administration and dosage:
The drug should be prescribed 2-4 tablets 2-3 times a day. The tablets should be taken after meals, without chewing, with plenty of liquid. The maximum daily dose should not exceed 1200 mg. In case of arterial hypotension, negative reactions from the gastrointestinal tract or the central nervous system, the initial dose may be reduced to 100 mg of pentoxifylline 3 times a day. In case of impaired renal function (creatinine clearance <30 ml / min), the dose is reduced by 50-70%, according to individual sensitivity. Patients with severe hepatic dysfunction also need to reduce dosage according to individual sensitivity. In patients with arterial hypotension, as well as in patients at risk of a sharp decrease in blood pressure (for example, with damage to the coronary arteries or severe stenosis of the cerebral arteries), treatment should be started with low doses, gradually increasing them until the onset of a therapeutic effect. The drug in tablets can be prescribed as an adjunct to parenteral administration or as maintenance therapy after its administration. The duration of treatment is determined by the doctor individually.
