ISOXSUPRINE

Description: Isoxsuprine is an α-receptor antagonist with β-receptor agonist action that causes peripheral and cerebral vasodilatation. It also causes cardiac and uterine relaxation.

This medication decreases symptoms such as cold hands and feet, numbness, tingling, and decreased memory or judgment because it works by widening blood vessels to help increase blood flow (improve circulation) to certain parts of the body (e.g., hands/feet, brain). It is used along with other treatment for certain blood vessel diseases (e.g., arteriosclerosis obliterans, Raynaud’s disease, Buerger’s disease, cerebrovascular insufficiency).
