Cilostazol is used to improve the symptoms of a certain
blood flow problem in the legs (intermittent claudication). Cilostazol can
decrease the muscle pain/cramps that occur during exercise/walking.
Claudication pain is caused by too little oxygen getting to the muscles.
Cilostazol can increase blood flow and the amount of oxygen that gets to the
muscles.Cilostazol is an "anti-platelet" and a vasodilator. It
works by preventing certain blood cells (platelets) from sticking together and
by widening blood vessels in the legs. This helps the blood to move more easily
and increases blood flow.
