how long to stay on pentox
« on: February 21, 2014, 01:56:35 AM »

ive gone off pentox now for about 6 months and was wondering if i had to go back on it - there has been no change for good or bad since I have stopped this.

I was on Pentox for a total of 8 months, which I started during the acute stage of he disease. Since stopping, I have not gotten worse and in fact have continued to have minor improvements over time. If symptoms return, I will start again. If not, it's better not to take medication if you don't need it.

I've seen various statements to the effect that Dr. Leu feels it can take as long as nine months for Pentox to work up to its full effect ...

I think that's a good notion though, as nine months just about covers what's considered a "typical" acute stage. It's a cheap drug and if you're tolerating it well, seems like good insurance or at least gives one the sense he's doing all he can.

I was on Pentox 18 months and if not more and more sever and high frequency flue (let's don't forget Pentox is suppressing the immune system) I was never stopping taking it.
I had many benefits from Pentox, not just Peyronies related.

I posted elsewhere that Pentifyllin (almost the same molecule as Pentox) was shown in vitro to be 10 times more potent in treating kidney fibrosis. It's an open question whether similar effect is true for our lovely disease.
