A 49-year-old member asked:
How well does cilostazol (pletoz, pletal) for angina in legs?

Well: But remember that treatment of intermittent claudication ("angina in legs") starts with discontinuing smoking (if you do), as NOTHING will work if the patient keeps smoking!!!
Aspirin and Cilostazol help and what may prevent it from getting worse is a serious walking program, controlling diabetes, cholesterol and hypertension.
