DRUG INTERACTIONS

Bleeding has been reported in patients treated with Vantoxyl with or without concomitant NSAIDs, anticoagulants, or platelet aggregation inhibitors.

Increased prothrombin time has been reported in patients concomitantly treated with Vantoxyl and vitamin K antagonists. Monitoring of anticoagulant activity in these patients is recommended when Vantoxyl is introduced or the dose is changed.

Concomitant administration of Vantoxyl and theophylline-containing drugs leads to increased theophylline levels and theophylline toxicity in some individuals. Monitor theophylline levels when starting Vantoxyl or changing dose.

Concomitant administration of strong CYP1A2 inhibitors (including e.g. ciprofloxacin or fluvoxamine) may increase the exposure to Vantoxyl (see ADVERSE REACTIONS).

Vantoxyl has been used concurrently with antihypertensive drugs, beta blockers, digitalis, diuretics, and antiarrhythmics, without observed problems. Small decreases in blood pressure have been observed in some patients treated with Vantoxyl plus nifedipine or captopril; periodic systemic blood pressure monitoring is recommended for patients receiving concomitant antihypertensive therapy. If indicated, dosage of the antihypertensive agents should be reduced.

Postmarketing cases of increased anticoagulant activity have been reported in patients concomitantly treated with Vantoxyl and vitamin K antagonists. Monitoring of anticoagulant activity in these patients is recommended when Vantoxyl is introduced or the dose is changed.

Concomitant administration with cimetidine is reported to increase the average steady state plasma concentration of Vantoxyl (

25%) and the Metabolite I (

What special dietary instructions should I follow?

Take Vantoxyl with meals to prevent upset stomach. If symptoms continue, tell your doctor. Your dose may need to be decreased.

Vantoxyl

Vantoxyl , a methylxanthine derivative, was the first drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for management of intermittent claudication. The proposed mechanisms by which it might benefit claudication include decreases in blood viscosity, platelet adhesion, and fibrinogen and improvement of red blood cell deformability. The largest trial to examine the effect of Vantoxyl in intermittent claudication, the Scandinavian Study Group trial with 150 patients, failed to demonstrate a significant improvement in pain-free or maximal walking distance compared with placebo. A meta-analysis of clinical trials found that Vantoxyl has a slight but significant beneficial effect on intermittent claudication, but whether a significant benefit is achieved is controversial. 61,62

Other effects

Vantoxyl is a non-selective inhibitor of cyclic-3’, 5’-phospho-diesterase (PDE), leading to a broad-spectrum effect against cell proliferation and inflammation. It also reduces the expression of adhesion molecules such as intercellular adhesion molecule-I (ICAM-I) on keratinocytes and E-selectin expression on endothelial cells.

It works by decreasing the thickness (viscosity) of blood. This change allows your blood to flow more easily, especially in the small blood vessels of the hands and feet.

This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
