Drug Mode of Action ::
Cilostazol is a reversible, selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase-III (PDE-III), thereby suppressing cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) degradation. Increase in cAMP in platelets and blood vessels leads to inhibition of platelet aggregation and vasodilation. Cilostazol also inhibits adenosine uptake into cells, which augments the cAMP-elevating effect of PDE-III inhibition.
Drug Interactions ::
Co-admin with drugs that affect CYP3A4 (erythromycin, other macrolides, diltiazem) or CYP2C19 (omeprazole) may influence the pharmacokinetics of cilostazol.
