Not specifically.: The best medicine would be to treat the vascular problem as aggressively as possible. So high blood pressure should be well controlled, etc.

Not FDA approved: There are no drugs fda approved for vascular dementia(vad). However, the same drugs used for alzheimers disease are also generally used fpr vad.
