High Dose Pentoxifylline Peyronie’s Treatment
My experience of Peyronie’s disease began in 2014 when I noticed to my horror a curvature of my penis, a growing plaque on the upper part of my penis and a most unpleasant pain sensation the like of which I had never felt before. I knew immediately what the disease was because some years ago I had read an article on the illness and it sent a shudder through me to think that someone might be afflicted by such a terrible problem.
My family doctor dismissed my concerns telling me that Peyronie’s was so rare that he had never seen it in twenty years of practicing medicine. As he did not examine me I am not surprised that he had never seen it!
I obtained a referral to a urologist from a different local doctor and he confirmed the diagnosis that I had already made for myself.
Needless to say nothing worked to stop the rapid progression of my disease. Over time it became extremely severe to the point that not only was sexual activity out of the question, but I could hardly pass water without much discomfort. The plaque grew to cover the entire upper length of my penis tunica. I could not sleep at night for the pain.
After much study I concluded that Pentoxifylline was the only treatment that had any chance of working. I was impressed with the work of Dr. Tom Lue in San Francisco who used high doses of this drug, up to twice the manufacturer’s recommended limit.
But my problem was that high dose Pentoxifylline caused me to experience severe anxiety and a raised heart rate. After experimentation I found that 80 – 120 mg of Verapamil taken with the Pentoxifylline greatly reduced or eliminated the unpleasant side effects of the Pentox and allowed me to stick to a high dose Pentox regime. Pentox could stop my Peyronie’s pain within an hour and allowed me to sleep at night so I knew that it must be working.
After six months of this treatment I began to notice that my plaque was starting to shrink from the end of my penis and healthy tunica remained. Within a three week period approximately 90% of my plaque retreated down my penis and disappeared. I could see it shrink on a daily basis. I was overjoyed and amazed.
The remaining 10% of my plaque remained at the base of my penis and did cause a bend that made sexual relations difficult, almost impossible. But nevertheless I was hugely better than my former state. Over the following year to eighteen months that remaining 10% of plaque slowly continued to shrink until eventually it completely disappeared and I made a complete recovery. I now have zero plaque.
My sexual performance is exactly the same as before my illness. My penis is as good as when I was a teenager, yet I am sixty five years of age.
In fact I think that my penis might be better than before my illness. It is possible that I was affected by mild Peyronie’s for many years before the severe bout of the illness and I did not realise that something was wrong.
I now appreciate the health of my penis and I rejoice that I was able to make such a complete recovery. If you are afflicted with this wretched disease I wish you good luck and I suggest that you try my oral Pentox/Verapamil treatment; BUT NOT the injected Verapamil treatment. I would think that is a foolish idea. I would not want to stick needles into an already severely inflamed tunica tissue.
Nor would I try the bending and stretching treatment, for the same reason.
I told Dr Tom Lue about oral Verapamil stopping the Pentox side effects, but I don’t know if he has since recommended it to his patients. He had not heard of it before I told him that it worked for me.
Don’t forget that I made a 100% recovery using Pentox/Verapamil. I took no other drugs or supplements and no other treatment method. Dr Lue told me that using other drugs and supplements might reduce the effectiveness of the Pentox. He was correct. But I did take the Verapamil. It allowed me to take twice the dose of Pentox.
If I had my life over again, I would try another thing to speed my recovery from Peyronie’s disease. I would immediately switch to Vegan diet. Numerous studies show that Veganism increases blood flow in the smaller capillaries, such as can be found in the tunica. That is how Pentox is thought to work. I now follow a strict Vegan diet in the hope that this will prevent a recurrence of the disease.
