The most com­mon symp­toms of vari­cose veins are swelling in the low­er part of the legs, a feel­ing of heav­i­ness, fatigue and full­ness in the legs, espe­cial­ly in the evening. Then there is a spi­der vein, or aster­isks on the skin, which are called telang­iec­tasias, neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­or­ders occur, such as pares­the­sias: a feel­ing of crawl­ing (formi­ca­tion), numb­ness and tin­gling. There are a lot of rea­sons for the devel­op­ment of the dis­ease, from a seden­tary lifestyle to the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the body. For­tu­nate­ly, there are no few­er meth­ods of treat­ing and pre­vent­ing the dis­ease.

Reme­dies for vari­cose veins work most effec­tive­ly togeth­er with a decrease in the load on the legs, a change in the mode of work and lifestyle. We exam­ined the main groups of drugs and folk meth­ods that help with venous insuf­fi­cien­cy and are ben­e­fi­cial in the ini­tial stages.

Rating of the best remedies for varicose veins

Phlebotonic tablets

Phle­boton­ic tablets Detralex (Venarus, Fle­baven, Phle­bo­d­ios)

Derived from herbal extracts, these reme­dies reduce inflam­ma­tion and ten­sion and relieve the feel­ing of heav­i­ness in the legs. The main active sub­stances in tablets are most often hes­peridin and dios­min. The for­mer can be found in cit­rus fruits, espe­cial­ly oranges. The sec­ond is man-made. Means are applied sev­er­al times a day dur­ing meals. Treat­ment usu­al­ly takes sev­er­al months, in severe cas­es — a year.

Users in the reviews say that the pills relieve ini­tial symp­toms. They reduce the time of pas­sage of blood through the ves­sels, make the cap­il­lar­ies more sta­ble. Of the short­com­ings, a slow action is not­ed: the effect is felt after a few days, up to a week. They will not help with acute pain. Each drug has side effects, includ­ing nau­sea and vom­it­ing. Before use, you should con­sult with your doc­tor. But many pills are allowed at any age, they are pre­scribed even for preg­nant women.


Creams for vari­cose veins

Creams got to their right­ful place due to the quick effect and min­i­mal con­traindi­ca­tions. They elim­i­nate the feel­ing of heav­i­ness and swelling, dull pain. Creams are rec­om­mend­ed to be applied in a thin lay­er and eas­i­ly rubbed into the legs sev­er­al times a day. They are most effec­tive when paired with com­pres­sion under­wear or a ban­dage. The prod­uct is quick­ly absorbed, does not leave a film and greasy marks. The undoubt­ed advan­tage is the lack of inter­ac­tion with tablets, they are used in com­bi­na­tion. The aver­age course of treat­ment is 2 weeks, a stan­dard tube con­tains 40 grams of cream.

Users say that most prod­ucts can be pur­chased at a phar­ma­cy or cos­met­ics depart­ment. They most often include nat­ur­al sub­stances: horse chest­nut, laven­der, essen­tial oils, field horse­tail. How­ev­er, such creams have a pre­ven­tive effect, not help­ing with advanced dis­ease. For exam­ple, they are able to strength­en the walls of blood ves­sels. Most often, doc­tors com­bine tak­ing oint­ments, tablets and oth­er med­ica­tions.

Anti-inflammatory drugs

Anti-inflam­ma­to­ry drugs for vari­cose veins

They open the top three anti-inflam­ma­to­ry drugs that quick­ly elim­i­nate pain. The most com­mon exam­ple is aspirin, although more effec­tive alter­na­tives have long been avail­able. These drugs reduce the symp­toms of inflam­ma­tion, reduce the tem­per­a­ture. The most potent reme­dies are able to remove swelling and red­ness. They are used in short cours­es, since they do not cure the prob­lem. Most often, a few days are enough to feel the effect. In extreme cas­es, intra­mus­cu­lar injec­tions are pre­scribed.

The reviews warn that anti-inflam­ma­to­ry drugs to vary­ing degrees can cause exac­er­ba­tion of stom­ach ulcers. Of course, some drugs are safer, but patients with prob­lems with the gas­troin­testi­nal tract should con­sult a doc­tor. The rest are advised to min­i­mize the con­sump­tion of funds, leav­ing them as a last resort. But they are con­sid­ered the most effec­tive for sup­press­ing sec­ondary inflam­ma­tion. Most often they are used for advanced vari­cose veins.

Blood thinners

Blood thin­ners

Clots can clog blood ves­sels and dam­age the heart, and with vari­cose veins, the risk of blood clots is increased. How­ev­er, the dosage and time of admis­sion is pre­scribed by the attend­ing physi­cian; it is dif­fi­cult to find them in free sale. Most have seri­ous side effects and con­traindi­ca­tions. For exam­ple, patients should be reg­u­lar­ly test­ed to mon­i­tor blood clot­ting.

Drugs are often added to drugs that pro­mote tis­sue regen­er­a­tion and improve blood cir­cu­la­tion. The stan­dard course lasts 3 weeks, funds are tak­en sev­er­al times a day. How­ev­er, the exact dose is cal­cu­lat­ed by the phle­bol­o­gist, since it is impos­si­ble to inde­pen­dent­ly deter­mine the required lev­el of blood flow stim­u­la­tion. These funds will not help cure the dis­ease, but they will pre­vent com­pli­ca­tions in the form of throm­bo­sis, relieve pain. In the most advanced cas­es, they reduce the risk of dis­abil­i­ty.


Oint­ments for vari­cose veins

Among the most effec­tive, we con­sid­ered oint­ments that pro­mote healthy blood cir­cu­la­tion. Mod­ern prepa­ra­tions con­tain nat­ur­al sub­stances and vit­a­mins that restore the skin. Although most oint­ments in the pub­lic domain help only in the ini­tial stages. They give the effect of chill, due to which there is a feel­ing of light­ness. With­out a doc­tor’s pre­scrip­tion, they are often for­bid­den to use: side effects almost always include der­mati­tis and aller­gies. How­ev­er, this applies to use with­in 2–3 months. The stan­dard course is sev­er­al weeks.

Oint­ments will not be able to cure vari­cose veins, so the legs will remain in the same form as they were before use. But the symp­toms and dis­com­fort will go away. Users in the reviews rec­om­mend using the drugs once a day. It is enough to raise your legs high­er in the morn­ing, hold it for 15 min­utes and apply the rem­e­dy.

Compression underwear

Com­pres­sion under­wear

Com­pres­sion under­wear is the best pre­ven­tive mea­sure that helps at any stage. Mod­ern seam­less tights, socks and stock­ings prac­ti­cal­ly do not dif­fer from ordi­nary ones, but they put pres­sure on the legs in a spe­cial way, pre­vent­ing blood sta­sis. Veins are most often affect­ed in peo­ple who lead a seden­tary lifestyle, so they are advised to reg­u­lar­ly wear spe­cial under­wear. Preg­nant women have prob­a­bly heard sim­i­lar rec­om­men­da­tions from doc­tors. If you pay atten­tion to com­pres­sion under­wear in the first trimester, you can avoid vari­cose veins.

Stock­ings and tights are divid­ed into sev­er­al class­es accord­ing to the degree of com­pres­sion and elas­tic­i­ty. How­ev­er, most of them can only be bought with a doc­tor’s pre­scrip­tion, as mis­use will wors­en the sit­u­a­tion. For pre­ven­tion, it is rec­om­mend­ed to pur­chase first-class under­wear, which mas­sages the legs a lit­tle, keeps them in good shape. Users are advised to vis­it a spe­cial store where the con­sul­tant will select the cor­rect size. Oth­er­wise, there will be no effect. The time of use depends on the degree of vari­cose veins, the stan­dard course takes 6 months. The dis­ad­van­tages include the high price and prob­lems with dai­ly putting on stock­ings and tights.

Folk remedies

Folk reme­dies for vari­cose veins

Folk reme­dies are an effec­tive addi­tion to treat­ment. Tinc­tures, nat­ur­al gels, teas and oint­ments thin the blood, reduce its clot­ting, and strength­en blood ves­sels. The most pop­u­lar reme­dies are blue­ber­ries and horse chest­nuts. They are often includ­ed in com­mon gels and creams that relieve inflam­ma­tion. Blue­ber­ries are rec­om­mend­ed to be tak­en fresh, brew teas. Habit­u­al gar­lic is also often found in recipes. With reg­u­lar use, dis­com­fort dis­ap­pears, the veins become small­er. It is enough to crush the gar­lic along with the husk, mix it with but­ter. This com­press is applied at night. In the morn­ing, the legs are treat­ed with a gel or cream, a ban­dage is applied.

Users in the reviews talk about the effec­tive­ness of herbal teas. It is rec­om­mend­ed to use St. John’s wort and yarrow. Such infu­sions are drunk sev­er­al times a day dur­ing the entire peri­od of treat­ment. A nice bonus is the almost com­plete absence of con­traindi­ca­tions, only indi­vid­ual intol­er­ance to the ingre­di­ents. How­ev­er, tra­di­tion­al med­i­cine is inef­fec­tive in treat­ing, only reliev­ing symp­toms. Still, it is bet­ter to con­sult a doc­tor before tak­ing folk reme­dies, espe­cial­ly dur­ing preg­nan­cy.

Contrast baths

Con­trast baths

Con­trast baths made from nat­ur­al prod­ucts almost instant­ly reduce dis­com­fort in the legs. The most pop­u­lar method of appli­ca­tion is dip­ping the feet in basins of hot and cold infu­sions. Com­plete the pro­ce­dure by dous­ing with slight­ly warm water. To relieve ten­sion and fatigue, users rec­om­mend mak­ing baths from net­tle, bur­dock, birch. It is enough to mix all the ingre­di­ents, pour boil­ing water and let it brew for an hour. Then hold your feet in the bath for about 20 min­utes. Such funds have a stim­u­lat­ing and ton­ic effect. How­ev­er, with dilat­ed veins, only baths with warm and cold water are allowed, hot ones are con­traindi­cat­ed.

Users note that these funds are the most afford­able. Chamomile and lin­den are sold in a phar­ma­cy for a pen­ny, but they help no worse than some creams. They relieve cramps and pain in the legs. How­ev­er, baths can only relieve symp­toms, not cure the dis­ease. With severe malaise, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal tablets are most effec­tive. But the baths have no con­traindi­ca­tions, all ingre­di­ents are freely avail­able.
