Medications

Because most vascular disease is associated with atherosclerosis, medications may be prescribed to reduce the overall risks of atherosclerosis, such as heart attack or stroke. These might include medications to

  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Control diabetes
  • Prevent blood clots

Other medications may be specifically for the vascular disease for which you are being treated. These might include symptom-relief medications or stronger medications for blood clots.

If a blood clot is blocking an artery, your doctor can administer thrombolytic therapy in which a clot-dissolving drug is injected into the artery at the point of the clot.
