    Aortic Aneurysm - Medications

    Medicines used to treat high blood pressure, such as beta-blockers, may be used to slow the growth rate of an aortic aneurysm.

    If you have high cholesterol, your doctor might recommend that you take medicines, such as statins, to lower it. Having high cholesterol increases your risk of atherosclerosis, which can cause aortic aneurysms and other conditions, such as coronary artery disease and stroke.
