How We Can Help
Vasculitis Treatment Information
Treatments for vasculitis include:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Available in over-the-counter and prescription versions, these medications can help to relieve inflammation in mild cases of vasculitis.
- Corticosteroids. Synthetic hormones, such as prednisone, prednisolone and methylprednisolone, help to reduce inflammation of the blood vessels and are a mainstay of vasculitis treatment.
- Immune suppressants. We sometimes use drugs such as azathioprine, methotrexate and cyclophosphamide, either alone or in addition to corticosteroids, to control inflammation of the blood vessels.
