Is Potaba A Viable Treatment For Peyronie’s
Potaba has been used in the treatment of Peyronies disease for many years, in recent times, it has however been replaced by Pentox as the drug of choice for many doctors.
The generic name is Pottasium Aminobenzoate – Potaba is the best known brand, but it can also be known as PABA and M2 Pottassium.
Related to Vitamin B, Potaba is most commonly used to treat fibrosis (the thickening and scarring of connective tissues) and inflammation.
How Does Potaba Work
Potaba helps to soften skin tissues and has shown some positive effects in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease.
The recommended dose for Potaba when used in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease is 12 g per day = 24 x 0.5g tablets. Generally patients are instructed to take 6 tablets, four times a day.
Are There Any Side Effects
Potaba has a downside, the side effects, while not life threatening can be unpleasant for some patients. The most common are stomach upset’s, bad wind, nausea and reduced appetite.
Other effects can include low blood sugar, and it can also interfere with some medications. For this reason it’s important to discuss any other medication with your doctor before taking Potaba. Alcohol should also be avoided while taking Potaba.
Studies have shown that Potaba can (in some patients) help to stabilize the disease and reduce plaque size. There is no clinical evidence that Potaba can reduce both penis pain and curvature.
Potaba can be quite expensive to buy/prescribe and these days it does tend to take a back seat to Pentox and other natural supplementation including L-Arginine, L-Carnitine and CoQ10.
The reported side effects linked to Potaba do pose a worry for many patients, there are now better and safer drugs and supplements that tend to offer better results without the health risks…
