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.
