Any drugs out there to break up plaque in coronary arteries rather than all invasive stuff? Clot buster drugs but nothing for plaque?

Any drugs out there to break up plaque in coronary arteries rather than all invasive stuff? Clot buster drugs but nothing for plaque?

No.: The various kinds of plaque that build up in the arteries have been building up for years, in some cases even decades. There is no medicine that will undo the remodeling due to years or decades of high blood pressure, smoking, cholesterol, etc. The best strategy is to modify the modifiable risk factors (and hope you have good genes).

What is a difference between calcium channel blocker and clot buster?

What is a difference between calcium channel blocker and clot buster?

Apples vs. Oranges: They are both cardiac medicines. They are however used for totally different reasons. Calcium blockers are most commonly used to treat high blood pressure. They may also be used to treat chest pain or to slow the heart. Clot busters are used to dissolve a clot in the arteries that supply blood to the heart itself and therefore to limit the amount of heart damaged by removing the blockage.

How long do anticlotting drugs stay in someone's system?

How long do anticlotting drugs stay in someone's system?

Depends on meaning: This is a bit complicated, since any given drug has a "half-life" that is a measure of how long that drug, or its metabolites or by-products, can be detected in the blood. Then there is the biologic or physiologic half-life which is a measure of the "function", or in your example, how long the effect lasts. Once you know the "half-life", figure on approximately five half-lives to minimal effect.

What drugs are safe and unsafe?

What drugs are safe and unsafe?

Many of them: This is not an easy answer since there are many drugs categorized as unsafe. The american porphyria foundation has good resources on drug safety: http://www. Porphyriafoundation. Com/testing-and-treatment/drug-safety-in-acute-porphyria. Just because a drug may be listed as unsafe doesn't mean it's unsafe for everyone. However, it's important to use caution with any drug that is potentially unsafe.

Which organizations offer drug/health pkans?

All insurers should: Major insurance companies have drug plans. The insurance companies can have their own plan, or contract with a separate company to run a drug plan. Other groups, such as aarp, may have a plan (but again, they contract with a separate company to run the plan). Plans have benefits for local retail pharmacies to handle short-term prescriptions, and mail-order pharmacies for 90-day prescriptions.
