Vasculitis (cont.)

Medications

The medical treatment of vasculitis largely depends on the severity of disease and the organs involved. In general, treatment is directed toward stopping or slowing the inflammatory process going on in the blood vessels. The most common medications used are the steroid-based anti-inflammatory medications (corticosteroids), such as prednisone.

Other immunologic medications may also be used in the treatment of vasculitis, such as cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan), azathioprine (Imuran, Azasan), or methotrexate (Rheumatrex, Trexall).
