New Pentoxifylline Study

In recent years pentoxifylline has been suggested as a peyronie's disease treatment. Top urologists often suggest the PAV cocktail (Pentoxifylline, L-Arginine and Viagra), though in many instances the push to get pentoxifylline recognised as a valid treatment option is patient rather than urologist driven.

Take a look at this study.


Until recently pentoxifylline studies had been very thin on the ground. In fact, to the best of my knowledge this is the first study as such (other than a previous case study on one man, and seperate comments made by Dr Lue). The study, shows that while it may well not be the 'answer' to peyronie's disease, pentoxifylline IS likely a useful treatment for those with early chronic Peyronie's disease. It doesn't help everybody, but when you consider the lack of other available oral options, it is the right path to take. More research is needed to confirm these findings, but make no mistake, this is good news, and hopefully urologists to take note.

The jury is still out on the extent that pentoxifylline helps those with well established peyronie's disease, but a study relating to breast cancer posted here previously does suggest that it's a possibility, and certainly worth giving it a try.

i am currently taking this cocktail. i have been on the medication for about 2 weeks and have seen no help yet-how long does it take for this cocktail to start working? does vit e help or hinder the process/ how can i speed up the process of removing the plaque?

Pentoxifylline right now. I notice my penis it is at least starting to get hard... I wish my Doctor would have prescribed Viagra at least! I understand the point of all these drugs is to improve the blood flow to get rid of the obstruction "scars"
