Trental for lipo
May 19, 2003

I would like to know what info you have about the use of Trental for lpodystrophy. My doctor just put me on it and said it would help.

Response from Dr. Moyle

It has not been studied for this indication. Details of its uses and risks can be found at See

In choosing to take a drug one must weigh up the risks vs benefits. If benefits have not been demonstrated in a research study then it makes it hard to weigh things up

I hope this helps
