In brief: Medical treatment

If you mean treating the systemic effects of peripheral arterial disease (pad), such as atherosclerosis and particularly with coronary artery disease, there are a number of medications available.
If you mean specifically for the symptoms of pad in the legs, most commonly intermittent claudication (ic), Cilostazol has been proven to be quite effective in reducing the severity of ic. Talk with pcp.
