Not indicated: There is no fda indication for the use of Pletal (cilostazol) to improve erections. It has no effect on the nitrous oxide - cgmp pathway (affected by viagra), the main pathway for erections (leads to smooth muscle relaxation and inc blood). Even though Pletal (cilostazol) thins blood, you still need to get it into penis. Viagra/cialis/levitra are pde-5 inhibitors allowing for smooth m relaxation. Pletal (cilostazol) pde-3 inhibitor.
