What should be used to replace isoxuprine to treat the condition of Raynaud s?

How can I replace isoxuprine to treat my condition of Raynaud s? I am having problems ordering without a Vet s script. I am at a loss to try to order in the States. I am almost out of the isoxsuprine. Why has the FDA change their ruling with obtaining the drug unless you have a Vet s script???Please assist me. Thank you.

Hi,

It is a beta2-agonist. Any asthma medication might help. Even coffee should be given a try. Alternatives are calcium channel blockers.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

My 88 year old mother has darkening of the face(entire check area), hands and very blue unde her fingernails! She is diabetic and on medication for that. She also is treating for HPB which she has had for as long as I can remember! Her physician did blood tests and it came that her blood contains a slightly high amount of oxygen! Would this be consistent with Reynard syndrome? What else should they be checking for?Thank you!

What type of medical conditions is gabapentin usually used to treat? What are the common short-term and long-term side affects? Should you start off with a small dose (100mg) and stay at that level, or increase the dosage over time? Do you usually have to increase the dose, to have continued effectiveness?

A 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet ( 2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption ( 3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?
