Prescription Drugs   Non-Prescription Drugs

Blood Viscosity-reducing Drugs are medicines that improve blood flow by making the blood less viscous (sticky).

The main use of Blood-viscosity Reducing Drugs is to relieve painful leg cramps caused by poor circulation, a condition called Intermittent Claudication. Physicians also may prescribe this medicine for other conditions, including stroke, impotence, male infertility, Raynaud's Disease, and nerve and circulation problems caused by diabetes.

Blood-viscosity Reducing Drugs are available only with a physician's prescription and come in extended-release tablet form. Examples of blood-viscosity reducing drugs are Pentoxifylline (Trental) and Oxypentifylline.
