Pentoxifylline can be taken

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us,

I have studied your case with diligence.

Pentoxifylline Oral 400 mg can be taken consulting your doctor.
Antiplatelet drugs may modestly lessen symptoms and improve walking distance. Options include aspirin clopidogrel.
Ramipril can help relieve symptoms of claudication by improving blood flow and enhancing tissue oxygenation in affected areas.

Limb exercises will improve blood supply and oxygenation.
Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care
