Grapefruit juice inhibits the metabolism of cilostazol and would decrease the effects of the medication. Sitting down when feeling lightheaded is an appropriate patient action. Smoking may limit the benefits of taking cilostazol. Diarrhea is usually mild and tends to resolve with continued therapy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
