How do medications treat a hemorrhagic stroke?

Hemorrhagic strokes result when a blood vessel or aneurysm within the brain bursts. Because doctors must stop the bleeding in the brain, people with a hemorrhagic stroke who are taking anticoagulant medication may need additional treatments to help the blood clot. Blood transfusions, vitamin K, or other substances may be given through an IV to stop bleeding. In some cases, analgesics like opioids are used to manage headache pain.
